Gov. Asks for Federal Disaster Aid

DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- Iowa Governor Terry Branstad has signed a letter addressed to President Obama requesting a federal disaster declaration for nearly two dozen Iowa counties hit by severe weather in June and July.
   The counties included in the request are: Audubon, Black Hawk, Butler, Cedar, Des Moines, Grundy, Hamilton, Hardin, Ida, Iowa, Jackson, Jasper, Johnson, Jones, Keokuk, Lee, Linn, Mahaska, Muscatine, Poweshiek, Tama and Washington.
   An early look at the damage in those 22 counties found the severe weather caused an estimated $13 million worth of damage that could be eligible for public assistance.
   In his letter, Governor Branstad also requested funding to conduct hazard mitigation activities for the entire state.
   The request comes after a series of storms producing heavy rains, flash flooding, strong winds and tornadoes.
