Amendment to Proclamation
[26 Pa.B. 3622]
Whereas, on July 19, 1996, I declared a State of Disaster Emergency in Blair, Clarion, Crawford, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, Mercer, and Venango Counties due to widespread and unusually heavy rains which struck the counties and caused extensive damage to roads, streets, bridges, private homes, businesses and posed other adverse life safety impacts upon the general population of the counties; and
Whereas, additional information provided by local officials finds that additional Western Pennsylvania counties were also adversely impacted by the same heavy rains, which caused widespread flash flooding to occur throughout the creek and stream systems and caused extensive road closures, damage to roads, streets, bridges, private homes, businesses, and continued adverse life safety impacts for the general population of Armstrong and Clearfield Counties; and
Whereas, investigations by state agencies of recently developing conditions indicate that additional resources of the Commonwealth may be needed to assist county and municipal efforts to mitigate and contend with the magnitude and severity of this continuing and expanding disaster emergency;
Now Therefore, pursuant to the provisions of Subsection 7301(c) of the Emergency Management Services Code (35 Pa.C.S.A. Section 7101 et seq.), I do hereby amend my Proclamation of July 19, 1996, as follows:
1. The counties of Armstrong and Clearfield Counties are now declared to be in a state of disaster emergency and are added to the previously designated disaster emergency area.
2. This Proclamation Amendment shall take effect immediately.
GIVEN under my hand and the Seal of the Governor, at the City of Harrisburg, this twentieth day of July in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and ninety-six and of the Commonwealth the two hundred and twenty-first.
[Pa.B. Doc. No. 96-1241. Filed for public inspection August 2, 1996, 9:00 a.m.]
