Parts of Missouri have already sustained storm and flood damage with additional storms and rain forecasted over the next several days.

"This action enables the state to be better prepared and ready to assist our communities. We have seen the tremendous power and destruction of this past weekend's storms in neighboring states, and with areas of Missouri already impacted, we want to ensure state resources are available should significant disruptions or damage occur," Parson said.

Executive Order 24-06 will expire on May 30, 2024, unless otherwise terminated or extended.
