Senator Ernst meeting with emergency management personnel from Pottawattamie and Mills Counties on Tuesday evening. 

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA —Yesterday, Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) met with local and state officials and emergency management personnel from Pottawattamie and Mills Counties to review the damage from this week’s devastating flooding and to lend her support to all the communities and families impacted.

“So many of my fellow Iowans have been impacted by these devastating floods, but as we saw in 2011, Iowans are resilient and are quick to lend a helping hand in time of need.

“My staff and I are in constant communication with local, state, and federal officials during this time. I strongly encourage anyone who is in an affected area to listen to the emergency management personnel on the ground, reach out for help, and stay safe,” said Senator Joni Ernst.

Iowans can find a list of disaster recovery resources here. In addition, the Iowa Department of Transportation has compiled a list of road closures throughout the state. Iowans can find that information here or by calling 511.
