Missouri’s request for a major disaster declaration was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Governor Mike Parson announced a total of 21 counties will receive federal assistance in response to severe storms and flooding beginning in late June and continuing through July 1.
FEMA’s approval of Missouri’s request means millions of dollars in federal and state reimbursements will now go to hard-hit communities in 21 Missouri counties. Locally that includes
Caldwell, Carroll, Chariton, Daviess, Grundy, and Livingston counties. These counties and others included in the announcement will receive reimbursements for emergency response costs and repairs to roads, bridges, and other public infrastructure.
