TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Gov. Rick Scott is seeking federal help for Floridians who were hit by Tropical Storm Debby.

On Sunday, Gov. Scott made a request to President Obama that  the state of Florida would receive a Major Disaster Declaration to assist Florida counties that were impacted by Tropical Storm Debby.

FEMA will review the governor's request and will advise the president before a declaration can be issued.

If a declaration is issued, Individual Assistance could be granted to qualifying counties.

Six rivers in Florida reached major flood stage.
