EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT NEWS
The Office of the Governor
MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today has requested a federal disaster declaration for 18 Wisconsin counties and two tribes for damage sustained from severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding in July. The request would provide federal disaster assistance to help local governments and electric cooperatives recover some of their costs from responding to the storms, protecting citizens, removing debris, and repairing roads and other infrastructure.

Gov. Tony Evers announced on Friday the state is requesting that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conduct a Preliminary Damage Assessment (PDA) in Wisconsin. The PDA will look at 17 counties and two tribal reservations impacted by storms that occurred in the state July 18-20. These storms produced at least 17 tornadoes and straight-line winds in multiple counties, downing trees and knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of people. The process is the first step in determining whether the state will seek federal disaster assistance. Read Full Incident Report
