    Governor Henry Declares State of Emergency

    Gov. Brad Henry today declared a State of Emergency for all 77 Oklahoma counties due to the winter storm affecting many areas of the state. The declaration provides a formal mechanism for local governments to seek reimbursement for recovery costs through the state’s disaster public assistance program should conditions warrant.

    “We're taking these actions so that the state will be in the best possible position to respond to the storm. I would urge all Oklahomans to exercise extreme caution if they have to venture outside,” said Gov. Henry.

    The State Emergency Operations Center (EOC) remains activated due to winter weather conditions that continue to impact areas of Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management (OEM) is in contact with emergency managers in the affected areas.
