federal disaster declaration

WASHINGTON, D.C.--   U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Gary Peters (D-MI) and Representative Jack Bergman (R-MI) yesterday urged President Trump to approve Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley’s request for a major disaster declaration following severe flash flooding that affected Houghton, Gogebic and Menominee counties. 

LANSING, MI (MPRN)--   People in four Michigan counties can now ask the federal government for disaster assistance. That’s after severe storms caused flood damage to Mid-Michigan in June.

People in Bay, Gladwin, Isabella and Midland counties can apply for things like small business loans and grants to help meet medical needs not covered by insurance.


MADISON, WI (AP)--   Governor Scott Walker has asked President Barack Obama's administration for a federal disaster declaration for nine northern Wisconsin counties and the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa tribal nation in the wake of torrential rains and flash flooding.

Thunderstorms moved across the region beginning July 11, producing heavy rain, damaging winds and hail. Walker's office said Wednesday that the storms caused more than $25 million in damage to roads and public infrastructure.
