WASHINGTON – Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer and Congressman Kelly Armstrong today issued the following statement after President Biden issued a major presidential disaster declaration for severe spring storms in North Dakota. In a letter to the president last month, the delegation urged for the declaration’s approval, stressing that repeated storms resulted in significant damages, power outages and flooding, which impacted the state through April and May. 

“North Dakota saw unprecedented levels of precipitation this spring in the forms of heavy downpours, snowfall, sleet and freezing rain,” said the delegation. “These storms had significant and widespread impact, causing long-lasting flooding and power outages. That’s why we worked with Governor Burgum to advance this disaster declaration, which will help cover the costs of recovery, while making resources available to improve resiliency in the long-term.”
