Governor Earl Ray Tomblin declared a State of Emergency as WV braces for a second round of winter weather, according to a news release issued by his office. A State of Emergency gives the Governor power to utilize resources more readily like the West Virginia National Guard. A State of Emergency does not guarantee federal assistance unless certain thresholds are met. The declaration also does not provide for direct individual assistance, according to the same news release. West Virginians should continue to consult their local office of Emergency Management for assistance as needed.
