President Trump has declared that a major disaster exists in West Virginia and has ordered Federal assistance to supplement state and local recovery efforts.

This is in regards to the flooding, landslides, and mudslides that occurred back in mid-February.

Federal funding will be available for local governments and some private non-profit organizations for emergency work and repair and replacement work.

Hancock, Ohio, Tyler, and Wetzel counties are among the local areas eligible for funding.
