Manchin Statement on West Virginia State of Emergency

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) today issued the following statement about the declared State of Emergency in West Virginia: 

“Last night’s storms caused severe damage and left hundreds of thousands of West Virginians without electricity in this extreme heat. I urge all West Virginians to be very careful, stay hydrated, and check on your neighbors – especially the elderly. I know the state will do all it can to care for those in need, and I will do everything in my power to make sure West Virginia gets any needed federal assistance very quickly.”
