Southern Iowa County Receives Disaster Assistance

A county in southern Iowa will get disaster assistance to respond to severe weather, Govenor Terry Branstad announced Monday.

Branstad issued a disaster proclamation for Union County. The county suffered damage after severe storms and rain on Sept. 9.

Under the declaration, the county can use state resources to recover from the storm.

In addition, households that meet certain income requirements can apply for grants to help pay for expenses related to storm recovery.

Those seeking such grants can get more information on the Iowa Department of Human Services' website.
