Governor Earl Ray Tomblin is asking the federal government for help with recovery efforts following damaging storms.

By requesting a major disaster declaration, Tomblin hopes to gain assistance with helping those affected by severe weather that swept the area, between June 12th and June 20th. Strong storms caused flooding and mudslides throughout central West Virginia.

If the declaration is granted, help would be given to individuals, businesses and local government agencies in Roane County.

The approval of public assistance would provide help to local government agencies in Doddridge, Gilmer, Harrison, Lewis and Mason Counties.

Governor Tomblin released a statement saying, "We have spent the last several weeks assessing the damage and gathering information needed for this request. It is clear, we have many West Virginians who need help."
