Gov. Jerry Brown declares State of Emergency in Madera Co.
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Governor Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency in Madera County because of severe winter storms.
The declaration allows Madera County to receive assistance from the state to pay for storm-related damage.
Madera County leaders declared a local emergency earlier this month following days of flooded homes and roads from weeks of rain.
The governor has already declared a state of emergency in Kings, Tulare, Mariposa, and Kern Counties.
On Wednesday, President Obama declared those areas a federal disaster as well.NEWS BY LOCATION | ABC30 BLOGS | DISCUSSION FORUMS
