County Seeking Emergency Declaration for June Storms

Pennington County may be eligible to get money from the state and federal government to pay most of the cost of repairs to public roads, bridges and other facilities damaged by a succession of storms in mid June.  According to the Rapid City Journal article, the storms and accompanying hail and flood waters are estimated by county officials to have caused over $900,000 in damages, most of which could be reimbursed through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
