MT Presidential Disaster Declaration Approved

Montana's request for the Presidential Disaster Declaration has been approved. The DECLARED Summary Sheet for major disaster declaration, FEMA-1996-DR for the State of Montana is attached. Also attached is the original request.

The estimated damage total is $8,601,039 to-date and the state and local share of that amount $2,150,260. Because this is an ongoing event, damage estimates may go up and the number impacted of counties, local and tribal jurisdictions may change.

These totals only represent damage to public infrastructure. Local emergency managers are still collecting information about losses incurred by individuals.
