DISASTER COUNTIES: More Than Half The State Affected
Well over half the state of Iowa has been declared a disaster emergency area.
On Friday, Governor Branstad issued disaster proclamations for 5 additional counties including Appanoose, Lee, Muscatine, Wayne and Webster.
Since stormy weather and flooding began on May 19, Branstad has named 53 counties to the disaster list.
Thirty of those counties have also activated their Individual Assistance Program which gives grant money to affected residents.
