The President signed a Major Disaster Declaration yesterday that orders Federal assistance for Iowa following last week’s severe storms. Today, the President joined a Disaster Recovery briefing in Cedar Rapids to share more about what’s being done.

One million residents were affected by damage to 332 cell towers during the storms. Winds of up to 112 miles per hour swept over half of Iowa’s counties, and up to 43 percent of the state’s corn and soybean crops were damaged or destroyed.
