MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker's office announced federal officials issued a federal disaster designation for eight flood-damaged Wisconsin counties.
The declaration applies to Ashland, Bayfield, Crawford, Grant, Iowa, Richland, St. Croix and Vernon counties along with the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
The declaration allows local governments to apply for money to offset repair costs.
Dane, Rock and Sauk counties were included in Gov. Walker's request, but FEMA workers decided they didn't have enough damage to qualify for federal assistance.
