Gov. Terry Branstad has issued a disaster emergency proclamation for an eastern Iowa county affected by recent storms and flooding.

Friday Branstad added Jackson County, which is along the Mississippi River, to a list of dozens of Iowa counties where disaster emergencies have already been declared.

This means state resources can be used to help recover from damage caused by flooding and thunderstorms.

So far, 89 counties have had disaster emergency proclamations this year. 67 of those, more than once.
