ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Governor Mike Parson has submitted the state’s disaster declaration to the White House, nine days after historic 24-hour rainfall caused catastrophic flooding across the region.

He said he’s hopeful FEMA, in combination with local agencies and jurisdictions, can continue to quickly offer resources and help to those affected by the flooding.
