Governor Declares State of Emergency


Hundreds of Oregonians have been forced out of their homes by flooding up and down the Willamette Valley,  and that has prompted the Governor to declare a State of Emergency. Cameron Smith, the Governor's Senior Advisor, says it's too early to tell if the state will qualify for federal aid. “You always heed a state declaration before you’re eligible for any federal aid on the back end; but there are typically stricter requirements at the county level and at the state level before we can tap into federal resources.” The State can ask the Army Corps of Engineers for technical assistance.
