Governor Brown Requests Presidential Major Disaster Declaration Due to January Storms

SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today requested a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration for the state to bolster ongoing state and local recovery efforts following January storms that caused flooding, mudslides, erosion, power outages and damage to critical infrastructure across California.

Governor Brown also issued an executive order today that adds the counties of Amador, Mono and Riverside to the 49 counties already included in the emergency proclamation issued last month due to January storms. The order also authorizes state funding through the California Disaster Assistance Act for 34 counties impacted by the storms and directs the California Department of Transportation to formally request immediate assistance through the Federal Highway Administration’s Emergency Relief Program for Amador and Riverside counties.

    I agree! If you don’t like it, move to another state Dick. Only positive contributions about the State of CA. I know, you should move to TX.

      And Texas says keep your hippie liberal finestein loving communist ass in California. Trump should tell asshole brown to politely “Fuck Off”. And every Texan is armed so remember that. We have freedoms and we honor them.

    Hope Pres. Trump doesn’t withhold help because of the sanctuary city criminals. Not all of us pick and choose which laws we abide by.

    This is what happens when your focus is bullet trains and illegal aliens. It time for the left to get out of the state.

    Thank you Governor for doing your job. This shouldn’t be used as a political football nor as a platform for hatred. People who are being hateful need to find another place to vent. It’s not a joke. Thousands of people’s lives, livestock, & orchards will be devastated if this dam goes. Remember Katrina?
