Noem requests another $11 million in federal disaster aid


September 4, 2019

PIERRE | As harsh weather continues to bear down on South Dakota, Gov. Kristi Noem is requesting the White House grant two additional presidential disaster declarations to cover $11 million in additional damage to counties, including Pennington, Meade and Lawrence.

Noem's office announced the additional requests for federal assistance after President Donald Trump signed a $46 million disaster declaration in June to cover damage from back-to-back winter storms and subsequent flooding in March and April. A separate disaster declaration was signed for flood damages on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
