(JEFFERSON CITY) – Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson is working with Missouri counties to provide assistance after the statewide flooding over the past few weeks. Lieutenant Governor Parson made it a priority for his office to reach out to those counties affected by flooding.

“My office has reached out to 52 Missouri counties directly affected by the flooding,” said Lieutenant Governor Parson. “We have spoken directly with 92 commissioners, sheriffs, mayors, emergency managers, and chiefs of police to offer assistance in locating resources or relaying messages to state agencies,” Parson said.

“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those affected by the flooding across our state, and my office will continue to be in contact with state and local agencies to offer any assistance we can as communities begin the cleanup and rebuilding process,” said Lieutenant Governor Parson. “The most important thing to realize now is what kind of job is left out there. The reality of it always comes in the weeks after. What it takes to repair the damage and continue the cleanup process. Those become the big issues. You’ve got to pick up all of the pieces and put them all back together, and we will be there to help in any way we can,” Parson said.
