Iowa Leaders Adding Up Flood Damage But Not All Counted

June flooding has hit nearly one-fifth of Iowa’s counties especially hard, according to details released from Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management Director Mark Schouten.

The government declared 18 Iowa counties as disaster areas, making them eligible for state assistance. The counties include: Buena Vista, Cedar, Cherokee, Clay, Dickinson, Franklin, Hancock, Ida, Kossuth, Lyon, Osceola, Palo Alto, Plymouth, Pocahontas, Sac, Sioux, Woodbury and Wright.

To put the destruction in perspective, 1993′s floods required disaster declarations in all 99 counties, according to Governor Terry Branstad.

Schouten estimates $15.5 million in damages so far. But he said that only counts public structures and roads. The figure doesn’t include private businesses, homes, farms and crops.
