Walker administration officials say the Wisconsin governor has requested that F-E-M-A (FEE much) conduct a preliminary damage assessment in the state. 

That's the first step toward a formal request for a federal disaster declaration.  Hundreds of Wisconsin families were impacted by the tornadoes and flooding events over the past three weeks.  Federal teams from F-E-M-A and the Small Business Administration will coordinate with state and local emergency management officials starting September 24th in a process taking about one week.
