Upshur County Commissioners met Thursday for their regular meeting. At that meeting, they discussed storm recovery in the county.
Not everyone in the county has power back, and that's caused the commissioners to continue the state of emergency until at least Monday.
That's when they'll meet again and decide whether or not it should continue.
Commissioners said they'll look at power outage numbers then, and figure out what's best for everyone in the county.
Right now, the outlying areas of the county are hardest hit, and many of those people still need help from emergency agencies.
"The report from the OEM office from just a little while ago, is that the Red Cross is still supplying 500 meals twice a day to Upshur County residents, so that kind of shows what the situation is as far as those that don't have electricity," said Donnie Tenney, president of the Upshur County Commission.
As soon we hear anything from commissioners on Monday about the state of emergency we'll be sure to let you know.
