ND Delegation: President Approves Disaster Declaration Covering Summer Storms in North Dakota

BISMARCK, N.D. – Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer and Congressman Kelly Armstrong today issued the following statement after President Biden approved a disaster declaration for North Dakota covering the impacts of severe storms in June. The delegation wrote to the president last month, urging him to approve the state’s request for a disaster declaration.

“Even while North Dakota faces historic drought conditions, the June storms caused severe damage due to overland flooding, tornados, hail and winds exceeding 90 miles per hour,” said the delegation. “We appreciate the president for approving this disaster declaration request, as it will unlock funding to aid in the state’s recovery, as well as funds to mitigate future disasters."
