7 disaster declarations signed for SD counties

Posted: Friday, Aug 2nd, 2013




PIERRE (AP) Seven South Dakota counties will receive federal money to help recover from a series of June storms.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says a presidential disaster declaration was signed Friday for Beadle, Codington, Deuel, Grant, Hamlin, Hughes and Kingsbury counties.

Preliminary estimates showed more than $1.7 million in damages. Costs included debris removal and repairs to roads, bridges, culverts and electrical power lines.

A disaster declaration authorizes the federal government to provide assistance for up to 75 percent of the eligible costs.
