Storey County Declares State Of Emergency In Response To Severe Weather
By TheNevadaGlobeStaff, January 8, 2023 11:56 pm
NEVADA – Following a special meeting of the Board of Commissioners on Jan. 6, a resolution proclaiming a state of emergency in Storey County due to extreme weather was approved.
The resolution was enacted in response to severe weather occurrences that resulted in considerable snow and precipitation accumulations, potential flooding, and widespread and recurring power outages caused by atmospheric river flows across the county.
The emergency designation may allow the county to access state and federal monies as well as other resources that would otherwise be unavailable for its response to the weather emergency.
According to Storey County officials, this move should not cause concern, but it should remind homeowners and businesses to be cautious and prepared for storm occurrences.
