(WASHINGTON) — Vice President Joe Biden and his wife will travel to Colorado on Monday to view damage caused by widespread flooding and oil spills.
President Obama has already declared Colorado a major disaster area and the potential for million of dollars in federal aid to help the state recover has prompted a visit from the vice president.
Last week’s floods damaged more than 15,000 homes and killed at least eight people.
Already, more than $4 million in disaster grants have been approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
