Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin spoke with Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and offered West Virginia emergency response resources to assist with the recovery efforts following this week's severe storms and tornadoes.
"In my conversation with Gov. Fallin, I offered our emergency response resources to assist with recovery efforts--letting her know we are prepared to help out in any way we can. We have also reached out to Oklahoma's National Guard and Department of Emergency Management to offer our support and we will continue to monitor all requests for assistance.
"Joanne and I continue to pray for the communities, throughout the Midwest, affected by the tornadoes and severe storms--especially those in Oklahoma City and the surrounding area. We ask all West Virginians to keep the families affected by this disaster in your thoughts and prayers."
