Gov. Terry Branstad has issued disaster proclamations for five Iowa counties following strong storms.

Branstad issued the proclamations Tuesday for Cedar, Lyon, Plymouth, Pocahontas and Sioux counties.

The action lets state resources be used to prepare for, respond to and recover from storms and flooding on public land or private land that might threaten public health and safety.

State resources already have been deployed, including pumps in Lyon County and thousands of sandbags in Plymouth, Pocahontas and Sioux counties.

Branstad and Mark Schouten, the director of the Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management Department, will survey damage in Lyon and Sioux counties Wednesday.
