DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad has issued a disaster proclamation for Sioux County following recent severe weather.

Branstad said in a news release Monday the proclamation will allow state officials to better assist the northwest Iowa county, which was affected by a winter storm that began Saturday.

Issues in the area included the explosion of an electrical distribution transformer box, a water main break and other electrical failures. It resulted in damage to public property and power outages throughout the city of Sioux Center.
