Governor Bob Holden has declared a statewide state of emergency because of the recent flooding that has inundated parts of Missouri – washing out roads, closing bridges, and resulting in the deaths of eight people. The disaster declaration makes Missouri resources available to help local governments in their recovery efforts. Holden is also asking the State Emergency Management Agency to begin surveying flood damage along with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. This is a precursor to requesting federal disaster aid.
