Oregon Governor Tina Kotek declared a statewide emergency, late Thursday, due to this week’s severe ice storm. The announcement comes after multiple counties submitted assessments and requests, on the sixth day of impacts. 

A state of emergency declaration allows counties to access federal resources through FEMA and other sources.

Kotek noted thousands of Oregonians have been impacted by the storm … from power outages to a lack of transportation and an array of safety concerns.
