The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has approved aid for seven more Iowa counties with widespread derecho damage, Gov. Kim Reynolds announced Friday.
Added to the list of counties in line for assistance after the Aug. 10 storm were Greene, Grundy, Guthrie, Hardin, Iowa, Jackson and Washington counties. The presidential declaration applies to public entities and select nonprofits.
FEMA had already approved 16 other counties for the assistance: Benton, Boone, Cedar, Clinton, Dallas, Jasper, Johnson, Jones, Linn, Marshall, Muscatine, Polk, Poweshiek, Scott, Story and Tama.
The Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa received a separate declaration from President Trump on Thursday.
The funding can be used for “emergency work and the repair or replacement of disaster-damaged facilities,” FEMA reported.
