Iowa counties get presidential disaster support

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad says that nine Iowa counties will receive federal disaster support to help with the response to recent storms.

Branstad announced a presidential disaster declaration Monday. The counties covered are Adams, Clarke, Decatur, Mills, Montgomery, Pottawattamie, Ringgold, Taylor and Wayne.

Branstad requested the funding earlier this month in response to severe damage caused by storms and flooding in June. The declaration will provide federal funding to the counties through a number of programs. The declaration also includes funding to help the state strengthen infrastructure and limit the impact of future disasters.
