BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum has asked President Donald Trump for a federal disaster declaration for extensive storm damage sustained by infrastructure, farms and ranches in July.
Burgum is seeking Federal Emergency Management Agency funding for repairs.
A series of severe thunderstorms on July 20-21 produced large hail and high wind that caused more than $1.1 million in damage.
The request Thursday follows the governor’s action last week declaring a severe summer storm disaster for Bowman, Dunn and Slope counties.
Burgum made a separate request on Aug. 8 for a presidential major disaster declaration for drought. That request is still pending.
