DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad has issued a disaster proclamation for Kossuth County in northern Iowa to respond to recent storms.

Branstad announced the declaration Thursday. Severe storms Tuesday night and Wednesday morning dumped nearly 5 inches of rain on parts of Kossuth County.

Under the declaration, state resources can be used to help the counties recover from the storms. In addition, households that meet certain income requirements can apply for grants to help pay for expenses related to storm recovery. Those seeking such grants can get more information on the Iowa Department of Human Services’ website.
