BREAKING! MAYOR ASKS GOVERNOR TO DECLARE POSTVILLE A "HUMAN AND ECONOMIC DISASTER AREA"
Turner Hall will be the new disaster relief center and will be open Monday.
Until then, the multicultural center will distribute food, meals and assistance.
Jeff Abbas of Postville Radio wanted to specifically thank the many Agriprocessors displaced workers who joined his all volunteer crew and "worked feverishly all week to help distribute food, clothes and hot meals."
The state will be working all weekend to put the disaster relief into effect. There will be a committee made up of seasoned state and county officials that will guide the relief.
Expect normal types of relief along with job placement, unemployment benefits, and other services.
Agriprocessors issued a statement saying it was "acutely aware" of the need to share as much information as possible.
Disaster relief should make life a lot easier for Agriprocessors' workers. Hang on until Monday.
