Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has issued a disaster declaration for 19 counties and two cities that experienced flooding recently. The move is intended to "ensure that all possible resources, in accordance with the Michigan Emergency Management Plan, are provided to assist the local response to the flooding," Snyder's office said. "We will be exploring all possible avenues for assistance to help affected residents and local governments recover from the severe flooding," Snyder said in a statement.
