Baker and his emergency management team plan to brief the Governor on damages and power outages that have impacted the County after Friday night’s storm.
“Like most of the region, we were hit hard by the storm. We have a tremendous amount of residents who are without power and some have been displaced an forced to move into our shelter,” said Baker. “Our goal is to give share our challenges with the Governor and see how the state can help. Last weekend we dealt with a microburst and this weekend a major storm. I am proud of the work our emergency management team has done for the last two weeks. They have been working around the clock to help our residents through some extremely tough times.”
