Derecho: Vital records can be replaced


Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds extended a disaster proclamation for counties impacted by the Aug. 10 derecho until Nov. 15. The original proclamation and extension allow for the replacement of vital records, boat, snowmobile, ATV or ORV registrations and/or titles in the recorder’s office due to them being lost, destroyed or rendered illegible as a result of derecho. Please contact your local Recorder’s Office for information on obtaining the free replacement.

This effects the following counties: Audubon, Benton, Boone, Cass, Cedar, Clarke, Clinton, Dallas, Greene, Grundy, Guthrie, Hardin, Iowa, Jackson, Jasper, Johnson, Jones, Linn, Madison, Marshall, Muscatine, Polk, Poweshiek, Scott, Story, Tama and Washington.
