McCrory Requests Federal Disaster Declaration

RALEIGH, N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory is requesting a federal disaster declaration to help nine central North Carolina counties recover some of the costs stemming from this month's winter storm.


A half-inch of ice, sleet and freezing rain fell on top of several inches of snow throughout the Triad and along the Virginia border counties earlier this month. Heavy winds compounded the storm's effects, toppling trees and knocking out power in much of central North Carolina for several days.


Local, state and federal emergency management staff spent last week surveying storm damage to determine if there was enough destruction to warrant possible federal aid. Damage assessment teams found enough to request assistance for Alamance, Caswell, Davidson, Davie, Granville, Guilford, Orange, Person and Randolph counties.
