Governor Surveys Storm Damage
Friday, November 2, 2012 - 03:22 Special to HNN From a Gov. Tomblin Press Statement
“As I’ve toured the affected areas of our state and seen the damage first-hand, it has become abundantly clear that West Virginians need additional assistance. Today, I will ask for a major federal disaster declaration,” Gov. Tomblin said. “We’re making progress, but I understand when it’s your power that’s off or your road that’s closed, it can be very frustrating. I ask for your continued patience as local, state, and federal agencies—as well as utility crews—continue to work around the clock to get utilities restored and roads open.”
"We're touring some of the hardest-hit areas of our state today to let people know that help is on the way. We're hoping to see the areas that have been inaccessible because of the extremely heavy snowfalls and make sure that people get the supplies they need. We're working very closely together in a coordinated effort with FEMA, the National Guard, the Governor's Office and local officials to help people restore their lives as quickly as possible,” Sen. Manchin said. “I fully support Governor Tomblin's request for a Major Disaster Declaration, and I will work with the rest of our Congressional delegation and the administration to make sure that request is expedited."
Gov. Tomblin and U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin assesed storm damage and meet with local emergency management officials. They visited Barbour, Randolph, Tucker and Upshur counties.
