For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
Contact: 202-282-8010

WASHINGTON—Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today spoke with Iowa Governor Chet Culver following the breach of the Lake Delhi Dam in eastern Iowa on Saturday.

During the call, Secretary Napolitano and Governor Culver discussed the ongoing state and local recovery efforts in the flooded areas of Hopkinton, Monticello and neighboring communities, as well as the Preliminary Damage Assessments that will take place this week by the Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management Division with support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

While Iowa has not requested federal assistance at this time, and no federal assistance has yet been deemed necessary, FEMA remains in close contact and coordination with its state and local partners and stands ready to assist should that assistance be requested and approved.
