U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D., has personally met with the director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to make it clear how seriously flooding is impacting South Dakota, she said Thursday.
Herseth Sandlin requested the face-to-face meeting with FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate, which was held Wednesday, she said during a teleconference with South Dakota reporters.
“Outside resources are imperative to get these communities back on their feet,” Herseth Sandlin said on the call.
