Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

U.S. Senators from Ohio Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown urged President Trump to act quickly on Governor Mike DeWine's request to designate 10 Ohio counties as Presidential Disaster Declaration.

The ten counties were hit hard by severe weather including tornadoes, severe storms, flooding and landslides that caused damage to buildings across the area.

The ten counties included in the letter to President Donald Trump were: Auglaize, Darke, Greene, Hocking, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Muskingum, Perry, and Pickaway.

The declaration would ensure that the counties could access federal assistance and resources to help the recovery process.
