Gov. Greitens requests federal disaster declaration for Missouri’s historic flooding

Today, Gov. Eric Greitens requested that President Donald Trump approve a major disaster declaration for Missouri that would provide federal assistance to a total of 51 counties in response to historic and devastating flooding that began April 28.

“As soon as safely possible, damage assessment teams began operating all over Missouri. Their reports confirm just how devastating this historic flood was for many communities in Missouri,” Gov. Eric Greitens said. “Today, I am requesting that President Trump approve federal assistance for flood survivors and businesses. This assistance will help our people begin to rebuild, and help local communities with costly emergency response and infrastructure repair costs. The people of Missouri are strong. Communities are coming together to rebuild. Support from the administration is essential to that effort.”
