29 Iowa counties granted disaster declaration

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Twenty-nine additional Iowa counties have been granted a presidential disaster declaration.

President Barack Obama made the initial declaration last month, but additional counties were announced Sunday.

That declaration will make federal money available to the counties hit by recent bouts of severe weather.

Seventy-nine Iowa counties total are now eligible for public assistance funding.
