Obama Declares Idaho Flood Disaster

President Barack Obama has issued a major disaster declaration for Idaho and made federal funding available to counties with flooding damage. Earlier this month, Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter requested more than $5 million in federal money for six northern Idaho counties to pay for fixing roads that were damaged by flooding and landslides during the first several weeks of April. Obama signed off on the disaster declaration Friday, the White House said. Obama ordered federal money go toward repairs in Bonner, Clearwater, Idaho, Nez Perce, and Shoshone counties and the Nez Perce Tribe reservation/Associated Press. More here.
