South Dakota Governor Rounds seeks presidential emergency

Pierre, South Dakota (AP) July 2010

Gov. Mike Rounds says he asked President Barack Obama on July 20 to declare a presidential emergency for three South Dakota counties and the Cheyenne River Reservation.

Rounds says that would free up federal money to help Dewey, Perkins and Ziebach counties and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe recover from damage done in June by tornadoes, severe storms and flooding.

Rounds also requested individual assistance programs for Dewey and Ziebach counties and the Cheyenne River Reservation.
