Disaster Relief Information 6/13

6/15/2008


Dear Friends,

 

The attached information will give you the additional 28 counties added to the disaster list.  There are also numbers and websites you can use to get help or give to someone in need.

 

They let me help out at the courthouse during this emergency.  Within hours, the people at the emergency operations center, otherwise known as the EOC, had multiple people working on getting food, shelter, power, water, sewage and property protected as well as we could.  I learned a lot of things this week and am still sorting it out, but will put it in words by the weekend for you.  

 

God bless and I hope this information will help you and your neighbors.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: State Representative Dawn Pettengill, (319) 610-3412


 


 


More rain swept through the state on Thursday, bringing further destruction from storm damage and flooding.  This prompted Governor Culver to add 28 counties to the disaster list late Thursday evening, bringing the total number of counties under a Governor’s Emergency Proclamation to 83.


 


The additional counties are: Adair, Appanoose, Audubon, Cass, Clinton, Davis, Decatur, Des Moines, Greene, Grundy, Guthrie, Henry, Jackson, Jefferson, Keokuk, Lee, Louisa, Lucas, Mahaska, Madison, Mills, Monroe, Pottawattamie, Poweshiek, Shelby, Washington, Wayne, and Winnebago.


 


The list previously included: Adams, Allamakee, Benton, Black Hawk, Boone, Bremer, Buchanan, Butler, Carroll, Cedar, Cerro Gordo, Chickasaw, Clarke, Clayton, Crawford, Dallas, Delaware, Dubuque, Fayette, Floyd, Franklin, Fremont, Hamilton, Hancock, Hardin, Harrison, Howard, Humboldt, Iowa, Jasper, Johnson, Jones, Kossuth, Linn, Marion, Marshall, Mitchell, Monona, Montgomery, Muscatine, Page, Polk, Ringgold, Scott, Story, Tama, Taylor, Union, Van Buren, Wapello, Warren, Webster, Winneshiek, Worth, and Wright.


 


Residents in these counties may be eligible for assistance from the Iowa Disaster Reimbursement Grant Program, which provides limited financial assistance to households that have disaster-related needs and are unable to meet such needs through other means. The program awards grants up to $3,319 per household to those meeting specific criteria.  Information on this program may be found at http://www.dhs.iowa.gov/Consumers/Assistance_Programs/CashAssistance/DisasterAssistance/StormHelp.html  Individuals are encouraged to apply for the grants as soon as possible.


 


Additional assistance is available through the Iowa Concern Hotline at http://www.extension.iastate.edu/iowaconcern/ or by calling (800) 447-1985.  Here those affected by flooding or storm damage may speak with stress counselors, and obtain legal & financial information, or help to identify the appropriate resources that may help in your particular situation.


 


The Iowa Department of Human Services has a hotline for disaster claims. To determine whether you are eligible to receive that state assistance, call (877) 937-3663.


 


For counties under a presidential disaster declaration, residents can call the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at (800) 621-3362, or go to www.fema.gov for additional federal assistance.
