RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- More than $64 million has been approved for disaster aid in North Carolina in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Wednesday more than 34,000 people in the state have sought help or information on disaster assistance since the Category 1 hurricane.

More than $24 million of the aid given out so far has been in the form of FEMA grants for temporary housing and the replacement of personal property. Nearly $35 million in low-interest disaster loans approved by the federal Small Business Administration have also been distributed.

Homeowners, renters and businesses applying for low-interest disaster loans from the SBA must do so by Nov. 30.
