JEFFERSON CITY – Gov. Jay Nixon this evening announced that President Barack Obama has approved his request for a major disaster declaration for Missouri as a result of the severe storms that generated flooding and flash flooding throughout much of the southern portion of the state from Aug. 2 to Aug. 14. The federal government has approved public assistance for 18 Missouri counties, which allows local governments and nonprofit agencies to seek assistance for response and recovery expenses associated with the severe weather and flooding.
