BISMARCK, N.D. — Gov. Jack Dalrymple plans to request federal assistance for areas of southwestern and south-central North Dakota hit hard by an early winter storm that dumped more than 20 inches of snow in some areas, knocking out power to thousands and killing livestock.

Dalrymple will submit his request for a presidential disaster declaration within the next few days, spokeswoman Amanda Godfread said.
