Statewide Iowa — Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds issued a disaster proclamation Thursday for the state of Iowa in response to flooding and severe weather beginning March 13th and continuing. Earlier Thursday Governor Reynolds activated Iowa’s State Emergency Operations Center to coordinate the response to Iowa’s flooding.
The governor’s proclamation allows state resources to be utilized to respond to and recover from the effects of this severe weather across the entire state and activates the Iowa Individual Assistance Grant Program for qualifying residents, along with the Disaster Case Management Program for 21 Iowa counties, including O’Brien, and Sioux Counties.
The Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEMD) along with several state and federal agencies, is monitoring rapidly-evolving conditions at locations throughout the state.
