Snyder declares second state of disaster for Houghton County

Jul 26, 2018

Flooding in the Upper Peninsula earlier this month prompted Governor Rick Snyder to declare a second state of disaster for Houghton County.

The declaration will open up additional resources and money for areas that were still recovering from severe flooding in June.

That flooding washed away large chunks of concrete and asphalt, damaged homes, and killed a 12-year-old boy.

Several roads that had already been repaired were damaged again this month.

Last month, Snyder issued disaster declarations for Houghton, Gogebic, and Menominee counties.
