     LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Severe windstorms in June cost Lynchburg more than $2 million to repair damage to public property, clean up debris and operate shelters.
     But the city is expected to pay only 2 percent of the bill. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is expected to pay 75 percent of the costs. The News & Advance reports that the state could provide 23 percent of the funding.
     The largest cost was debris cleanup. The city spent $1.6 million to remove debris and brush.
     Lynchburg also spent about $110,000 for shelter operations and other emergency protective measures. Repairs to public property, including buildings, cost nearly $240,000.
