DMCo Added to IA’s List of Disaster Areas
Des Moines County’s Road-Boss told the Board of Supervisors yesterday that the county has been added to the state’s list of disaster areas, due to the recent storms and flooding.
Brian Carter says Burlington was not the only spot hit by last week’s 80 mph winds. Mediapolis, Sperry, and Yarmouth areas suffered a lot of straight-wind damage as well.
The state disaster declaration determined and announced by governor Terry Branstad’s office, helps counties access state resources to help with the cleanup and fix-up.
