Amendment to Proclamation

February 7, 1997

   Whereas, on November 12, 1996, I declared a State of Disaster Emergency in Tioga County due to widespread and unusually heavy rains which struck the County and caused extensive damage to roads, streets, bridges, private homes and posed other adverse life safety impacts upon the general population of that County; and

   Whereas, the Proclamation authorized the Adjutant General of Pennsylvania to place on state active duty such individuals and units of the Pennsylvania National Guard, as requested by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, to alleviate the danger to public health and safety caused by the aforementioned emergency; and

   Whereas, the Adjutant General of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency have determined that there is a continuing need to use units of the Pennsylvania National Guard to perform public works and other public health and safety projects in Tioga County in order to alleviate the risk of future flooding along a river and several creeks located in that County; and

   Whereas, the current Proclamation is due to expire on February 9, 1997.

   Now therefore, pursuant to the provisions of Subsection 7301(c) of the Emergency Management Services Code (35 Pa.C.S. Section 7101 et seq.), I do hereby declare, order, and direct that the Proclamation of November 12, 1996 be renewed in Tioga County for a period of ninety days. All provisionsof the November 12, 1996 Proclamation and all authorized actions carried out pursuant to that Proclamation shall remain in effect.

   GIVEN under my hand and the Seal of the Governor, at the city of Harrisburg, this seventh day of February, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine-hundred and ninety-seven, and of the Commonwealth, the two-hundred and twenty-first.
