DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad has issued another disaster proclamation in response to recent severe weather in Iowa.

Branstad says in a press release that he signed a proclamation of disaster emergency Wednesday for Jefferson and Wayne counties in the southern half of the state. The areas were affected by severe storms and flooding toward the end of June.

The proclamation allows officials to use state resources to respond to effects from the severe weather. Branstad made similar proclamations for other Iowa counties last month.
