Looks like Governor Jerry Brown has finally decided to ask for the help of President Trump. This plea for help comes after all the damages caused by the storm.
Fox 40 reports:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown has asked President Trump to declare a major disaster for California because of damage from January storms.
The letter sent Friday says the relentless series of storms caused flooding, mudslides, evacuations, erosion, power outages and at least eight deaths. Northern California was hardest hit.
Brown says the storm system was so severe and widespread that state and local governments need federal assistance to continue dealing with the problems it created. In a separate action, the governor added Amador, Mono and Riverside to the 49 counties included in an emergency proclamation Brown issued last month.
The severe storm that hit California, left behind serious damage. All the damage cannot be mended without federal assistance.
