Seeking Another Disaster Declaration

Posted: Updated:

It's been a year of damaging flooding in North Dakota.

The state has already received a presidential disaster declaration to receive federal funds for repairs from flooding caused by runoff from the high snowfall amounts.

And state Homeland Security Director Greg Wilz says there may be enough damage from late May rain storms to qualify the state for another disaster declaration.

Wilz was briefing county officials about collecting and submitting disaster information for receiving federal funds to repair damaged infrastructure.

He says the county officials need to know the new requirements that FEMA has implemented to collect information about disastrous weather.

Wilz says the weekend storms that blew through central North Dakota punctuated the busy spring and summer of dangerous weather the state has been experiencing.

Wilz says it's not unheard of for a state to receive multiple disaster declarations in a single year.
