Another Mo. County to get Federal Flood Help
JEFFERSON CITY - Another Missouri county that has been battling flooding will get some federal help.
Gov. Jay Nixon announced Friday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has agreed to help reimburse Howard County and its local governments for their flood response efforts.
Earlier this month the same help was offered to Andrew, Atchison, Buchanan, Carroll, Cooper, Holt, Lafayette, Platte, Ray and Saline counties, all located along the Missouri River.
Nixon said in a news release that the counties are eligible to recover some of their costs for emergency protective measures and rebuilding.
