Governor Matt Mead is seeking federal aid from damages caused by spring flooding. Governor Matt Mead has signed a disaster declaration. He says the declaration is needed for Wyoming to qualify for assistance from the federal government. This spring Wyoming’s snowpack hit record levels.  The North Platte River reached record flood stage in Saratoga, many rivers, streams and creeks across the state topped their banks and the department of  transportation reacted to or is monitoring 37 landslides. The governor said local efforts in partnership with the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security, the Wyoming National Guard and the Wyoming Department of Transportation did a lot to protect people and property across the state.
