PERRYVILLE, Mo. (AP) — A quarantine of wood products from Perry County is likely, after the discovery of an insect that kills ash trees.

Perry County economic development director Scott Sattler says Missouri Department of Agriculture field agents recently found the emerald ash borer in a park in Perryville.

The larvae of the half-inch-long, emerald green beetle kill the trees by feeding on the bark of the trees.

Sattler told the Southeast Missourian that Perry County is not yet under quarantine. That's because the survey of the beetle's extent is ongoing. County officials expect a quarantine to be imposed in the next 30 days.

Sattler says the quarantine would affect all types of firewood.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — President Barack Obama has declared a major disaster declaration after severe storms struck Missouri from May 29th to June 10th.

The storms included one that spawned a tornado in the St. Louis area and others that caused widespread flooding.

The declaration allows the federal government to provide government entities and some nonprofits help paying for emergency work and facility replacement and repairs in 27 counties. They span from Barton County on the border with Kansas to St. Louis County. Funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

Obama will travel Wednesday to Galesburg, Illinois and Warrensburg, Missouri to make his case for spending on infrastructure and for universal pre-school programs. Obama is also expected to highlight the economic benefits of overhauling immigration laws.

East St. Louis Police are holding a man for allegedly attacking two officers at a crime scene.

Police say Darryl Robinson drove his car into a crime scene area on July 5. When officers with the East St. Louis Police Department and Illinois State Police tried to remove Robinson from his vehicle, they say he tried to drive off and hit two officers. The officers suffered only minor injuries, but Robinson was able to drive away. He was arrested earlier this week.

He now faces three charges connected to the incident.
