Governor Tony Evers Requests Federal Disaster Declaration

Wisconsin Public Service

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is looking to Washington for help after severe storms, tornadoes and flooding left millions of dollars in damages last month. 

Evers sent a letter to President Trump requesting a federal disaster declaration for 18 counties and two tribes Monday.  Damage assessments have put the losses at more than 19-and-a-half million dollars. 

If the declaration is forthcoming, it would help communities recover some costs, but wouldn't do anything for business owners or homeowners.
