The federal government has added a northeast Missouri county to the list of areas eligible for disaster assistance following severe storms and floods in late spring. The addition of Scotland County brings the total to 28 counties in which local governments and nonprofit agencies may seek federal assistance to help cover their response and recovery expenses.

The federal disaster declaration covers damage from storms and flooding from May 29 to June 10.
