Des Moines County added to disaster proclamation
Gov. Terry Branstad has issued a disaster emergency proclamation for Des Moines County.
The proclamation announced Thursday follows similar action for other counties due to spring storm and flooding damage.
The action will help Des Moines County access state resources in response to the damage.
Branstad also activated an individual assistance program that provides grants of up to $5,000 for home or car repairs, clothing or food replacements and temporary housing expenses.
