Branstad issues disaster proclamation after floods

Gov. Terry Branstad has issued a disaster emergency proclamation for seven Iowa counties in response to recent storms and flooding.

Branstad made the announcement Wednesday.  The counties covered are Audubon, Grundy, Ida, Jasper, Keokuk, Poweshiek and Washington.  The proclamation means state resources can be used to respond to areas affected by June storms.

The governor is also asking the Federal Emergency Management Agency to assess 20 counties that were hit hard by the storms.  Results of those assessments could be used to determine if the state should request a presidential disaster declaration.

The latest proclamation is the fourth such request the state has made in response to severe weather in June.
