A state of emergency was declared Friday by Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad with nearly 17 million chickens and turkeys dead, dying or scheduled to be euthanized due to a widening bird flu outbreak. The proclamation, in effect until May 31 unless terminated earlier, activates disaster response and recovery procedures for the state’s homeland security and emergency management personnel.
