Gov. John Hoeven has sent a letter to President Barack Obama requesting a federal flood declaration for the state of North Dakota, he announced Friday.

Hoeven specifically requested direct federal assistance to provide emergency protective measures for 18 counties and one reservation, including the Spirit Lake Nation and counties of Barnes, Benson, Burleigh, Cass, Dickey, Emmons, Foster, Grand Forks, LaMoure, Mercer, Nelson, Pembina, Ramsey, Ransom, Richland, Stutsman, Traill and Walsh.

Hoeven's letter also pointed out additional counties may be added as conditions change.

He asked for the flood incident period to begin Feb. 26, the day a state flood emergency declaration triggered the state Emergency Operation Plan. Starting the period on the date is necessary because some communities have already had expenses, his statement said.
