Coconino County officials say a disaster declaration from President Joe Biden will have “an indirect impact” on the county and the city of Flagstaff. 

Biden on Monday issued a disaster declaration for flooding that swept through northern Arizona this summer. The action allows certain federal funds to be allocated within Coconino, Apache, and Navajo counties for aid and repair efforts. 

The declaration applies to flooding sustained between July 22 and July 24.

The Arizona Department of Health Services reported 4,740 new COVID-19 cases Wednesday and 62 recent deaths. It marks the highest daily case rate reported since a statewide spike in January, according to ADHS data.

In a statement Tuesday, ADHS Interim Director Don Herrington warned of an uptick in Wednesday’s case report due to a “data processing issue.” A considerably lower rate — 822 cases — was reported Tuesday, along with no recent related deaths.
