Governor Tomblin Issues a Statement on the Denial of Federal Individual Disaster Assistance

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Charleston, WV

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today issued the following statement after FEMA denied his request for individual assistance to help West Virginians recover from the June 29th storm.

"I strongly disagree with FEMA's decision to deny sorely needed federal assistance to the victims of the unprecedented June 2012 derecho," Gov. Tomblin said. "I intend to appeal this decision and ask our Congressional Delegation to arrange a meeting with the FEMA leadership as soon as possible so that I can explain firsthand the devastation that I witnessed in the wake of this storm. While I hope an appeal will reverse today's federal decision, I understand there are many families struggling to recover from the significant financial impact of the storm, and I appreciate the many organizations throughout West Virginia that continue to provide assistance to them."
