Disaster Aid Request
(2008-07-04)
(wgvu) - Gov. Jennifer Granholm has asked President
Bush to declare a major disaster for parts of Michigan following
severe storms in mid-June.
Granholm asked Thursday for federal aid to partially cover the
costs to the state and local governments in responding to the June
6-13 storms that caused extensive flooding and wind damage in a
12-county area.
The counties include: Allegan, Barry, Eaton, Ingham, Lake,
Manistee, Mason, Missaukee, Osceola, Ottawa, Saginaw and Wexford.
Granholm says current estimates put the cost on emergency
measures at nearly $19.5 million.
Federal assessment teams in Michigan after the storms found
damaged roads, bridges and water control structures.
