Major disaster designations requested for Cass County. Gov. Dave Heineman has submitted the formal requests due to the county’s flood damage.
There are 29 Nebraska counties in the Major Disaster Declaration request that, if granted, can help with eligible costs to remove storm debris, take emergency protective measures and repair or replace disaster-damaged roads, bridges, public buildings, critical facilities, such as water, sewer and power systems and other public facilities.
The request also includes individual assistance for Cass and 10 other counties.
The requests will be reviewed by the FEMA regional office in Kansas City before being forwarded to the White House for a decision.
