Governor Wolf Visits Areas Affected by Severe Weather, Provides Recovery Update

Yesterday Governor Wolf toured areas in central Pennsylvania that have been heavily impacted by flooding and heavy rains. After the tour, the governor and public safety cabinet officials provided an update about the extent of the impact and next steps for clean-up.

According to WTVA:

“While Governor Wolf was in Tremont, he spoke to the members of the American Legion Post 384. A portion of the Legion was badly damaged by flood waters this week. He also met with first responders and other volunteers who have been working to pump water from homes all week. He said he came out to Schuylkill County to show support to the people who are dealing with this flooding.”

“Touring the state today gave me an up-close look at the intensity of the rain over the past days and how it affected residents,” Gov. Wolf said. “Most importantly, I was able to check on the safety of people in these hard-hit communities and speak with them to learn how the state can help.”

Officials and residents are now coming together to move forward with clean up and to work to restore their communities. Governor Wolf and his administration will continue to do all that they can to help the communities recover and get back to normal.
