Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) addressed his constituents on Tuesday via video from the Senate Chambers. Harkin expressed the immediacy of the need for aid for Iowa, describing people "who are really hurting," and who have lost cars, homes, businesses and livelihoods.

Harkin encouraged Iowans affected by the disaster to seek help in putting food on their tables while the flood waters recede. The Disaster Food Assistance Program is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Harkin is Chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee and a senior appropriator on the Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, which funds USDA programs.
