Days after touring areas of eastern Pennsylvania that were hard-hit by flooding, Governor Tom Wolf has signed a “disaster emergency” proclamation for the area.
Friday’s move allows the state to ask for a federal disaster declaration and seek funding for damages and needed supplies for clean-up.
On Thursday, Wolf heard stories of heroism around suburban Philadelphia. A police officer rescued people who participated in civil servants from civil and municipal workers and formed a chain to rescue an elderly grandmother.
The governor praised citizens and first responders to go up to help each other.
The rains last week triggered sudden floods in parts of central and eastern Pennsylvania, shutting down intensely intersecting cities and sending water to houses in mountainous coal regions.
