Gov. Asking For Presidential Disaster Declaration

July 18, 2014, 8:21 PM

Gov. Asking For Presidential Disaster Declaration
PIERRE, SD -

Gov. Dennis Daugaard has requested a presidential disaster declaration to help South Dakota repair infrastructure that was damaged by flooding and tornadoes in June.

The governor says the request is for public assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. His request for individual assistance at the beginning of the month was denied.

In a letter to President Barack Obama, Daugaard said he's seeking help repairing bridges, roads and public buildings. The state says they need help with repairs in 12 counties and a portion of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

Daugaard says the June storms damaged roads, culverts and bridges and produced at least 12 tornados.

If the president grants the declaration, the state says up to 75 percent of eligible costs could be reimbursed by the federal government.
