[33 Pa.B. 4662]
Amendment to Proclamation
September 9, 2003
Whereas, On August 6, 2003, I declared a State of Disaster Emergency in Crawford, Forest, Mercer, McKean, Potter, Tioga, Venango, and Warren Counties due to widespread and unusually heavy rains and tornado activity, 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 those counties; and
Whereas, additional information provided by local officials finds that additional eastern Pennsylvania counties were also adversely impacted by the same heavy rains, which caused localized flash flooding to occur in certain creeks and streams and caused extensive road closures, damage to roads, streets, private homes, businesses and continued adverse life safety impacts for the general population of Lackawanna, Wayne, and Wyoming 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 August 6, 3003, as follows:
1. The Counties of Lackawanna, Wayne, and Wyoming are now declared to be in a state of disaster emergency and are added to the previously designated disaster emergency area.
2. This Amendment to Proclamation shall take effect immediately.
Given under my hand and the Seal of the Governor, at the City of Harrisburg, this ninth day of September in the year of our Lord two thousand and three and of the Commonwealth the two hundred and twenty-eighth.
