Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today announced that during a special session of the state Legislature, legislators passed a supplemental appropriation bill to provide $10 million to help communities recover from recent 2012 natural disasters.
"For the past two months, I have visited numerous communities across West Virginia seeing first-hand the damage caused by horrific storms. The total damage assessment and financial impact of the recent storm damage continues to be calculated by our emergency response experts," Gov. Tomblin said. "This money will help bring needed relief to storm victims."
