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.
