The Nebraskan congressional delegation requested on Monday President Trump make a major disaster declaration following June storms in the state.
"The strong winds, including six tornadoes and golf-ball-to-baseball-sized hail, produced extensive damage across the state. Public power districts are reporting damages in excess of $13,780,024," the letter states.
"The damage included, but is not limited to: electrical distribution infrastructure and facilities throughout the affected areas, public and private property severely damaged by large hail, public and private structures destroyed or severely damaged by straight-line winds and tornados, injury and death to livestock, and irrigation systems damaged or destroyed."
Sens. Deb Fischer and Ben Sasse, and Reps. Jeff Fortenberry, Adrian Smith, and Don Bacon signed the letter. The Nebraskan delegation is entirely comprised of Republicans.
"We write in support of Gov. Pete Ricketts's request for a major disaster declaration, which followed the storms occurring between June 12-17," the delegation wrote.
Ricketts declared a state of emergency in areas of Nebraska impacted by the storms on June 20.
"As our communities recover and rebuild, the federal government has a duty to support our state with its restoration efforts," the letter states.
If the governor's request is approved by Trump, the state will receive access to federal assistance programs and funds.
Trump previously declared a major disaster in Nebraska on June 26 for severe storms and winds from April 29 to May 3.
