Gov. Dave Heineman requested federal disaster assistance on Tuesday, June 29, for several counties across the state to help individuals, businesses and governmental entities recover from the severe storms and flooding that struck Nebraska beginning June 1.
“Recent storms have resulted in historic flooding,” said Gov. Heineman. “We have seen significant damage to homes, farms, ranches, businesses and infrastructure. There have been countless stories of communities coming together to sandbag, and neighbors helping neighbors. I am proud of Nebraskans for pulling together during these storms.”
