WALKER REQUESTS FEDERAL DISASTER AID FOR WESTERN WISCONSIN DUE TO SEPTEMBER FLOODING

Gov. Scott Walker today sent a letter to President Barack Obama requesting a federal disaster declaration for 12 western Wisconsin counties after torrential rains and flash floods last month caused more than $11 million in damage to roads and public infrastructure. The request is for federal assistance to help local governments recover from the disaster. Walker requested federal disaster assistance for Adams, Chippewa, Clark, Crawford, Eau Claire, Jackson, Juneau, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, Trempealeau and Vernon counties. Last week, FEMA, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Wisconsin Emergency Management conducted damage assessments across the impacted areas with local officials. http://lacrossetribune.com/westbytimes/news/local/walker-requests-federal-disaster-aid-for-western-wisconsin-due-to/article_7da224c1-57a2-57c0-9bb0-847e47a0cf16.html
