As most of you know, Memorial Day week tornadoes wreaked havoc on homes, businesses, and churches in our community. The office of Representative Jena Powell (R-Arcanum) has received lots of questions regarding the disaster status of West Milton, and other parts of Darke and Miami County that were hit hard by the tornadoes and storms.
As of today, President Trump has granted Governor DeWine’s request for a Disaster Declaration due to the tornadoes, severe storms, flooding, landslides, and straight-line winds that affected Ohio counties on May 27-29. The counties designated for individual assistance include Auglaize, Darke, Greene, Hocking, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Muskingum, Perry, and Pickaway Counties.
Rep. Powell says, “Our community has been hit hard by the severe storms and tornadoes of May 27-29, adding to weather challenges that have been ongoing this year. This Disaster Declaration recognizes the significance of the damage, and will help our community rebuild.”
If you have questions about the Disaster Declaration or how to receive assistance, along with any state government concerns, you can give our office a call at 614-466-8114 or email Rep80@ohiohouse.gov.
