Gov. Branstad Issues Disaster Proclamation
DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) The storms across the Midwest have prompted Governor Branstad to declare a disaster emergency for five counties in Iowa.
Thursday, Branstad issued the proclamation for Adair, Cedar, Guthrie, Jones and Linn counties.
This means that state money and resources can be used to help communities clean up after the storms.
In addition, Adair and Guthrie counties will be allowed to use the individual assistance program. That gives grants of up to $5,000 per household for personal items like clothes, car repair, and food.
