CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice has expanded a State of Emergency declaration for portions of the Northern Panhandle and North Central West Virginia due to heavy rainfall that has caused significant flooding in those areas.
Counties now included in the SOE are Ohio, Marshall, Wetzel, Marion, Monongalia, Harrison, Taylor and Tucker.
WV Department of Homeland Secuurity, National Guard, and WV Voluntary Organizations Active in Disater (WV VOAD) are gathering information about the unmet
needs resulting from the flooding in northern West Virginia counties. The best
way to help at this time is to donate to a trustworthy charity or register and
train with a disaster response agency like the American Red Cross, a local faith-based or community organization that responds to disasters. Volunteer West Virginia will keep
you posted as volunteer opportunities become available.
