Governor Branstad is adding more counties to the disaster proclamation list following the recent storms and flooding.

On Saturday, 17-counties were added to the disaster proclamation bringing the total to 47 counties eligible for disaster assistance across the state. That’s nearly half of Iowan counties.

The governor will join state, local and FEMA officials Monday to conduct damage assessments to determine if the damage warrants a presidential disaster declaration request.
