McDonnell Seeks Winter Storm Federal Disaster Aid

March 15, 2010

Gov. Bob McDonnell has requested federal disaster assistance for the state and several localities hit hard by two winter storms last month.

McDonnell is asking the Federal Emergency Management Agency to pay for damage to public infrastructure, debris removal and related emergency services in 14 localities. He's seeking reimbursement for those items as well as snow removal for 26 additional localities.

McDonnell also is asking FEMA to consider the impact in an additional 43 localities that did not meet the snowfall threshold, but had significant snow removal costs.

Some parts of northern and northwestern Virginia got more than three feet of snow in early February, then an additional five to 15 inches days later. Other areas also got heavy snow.
