[26 Pa.B. 3122]

Amendment to Proclamation of Disaster Emergency

   Whereas, on June 14, 1996, I declared a State of Disaster Emergency in Bucks County due to widespread and unusually heavy rains which struck the County and caused extensive damage to roads, streets, bridges, private homes, businesses and posed other adverse life safety impacts upon the general population of that County; and

   Whereas, other Western and South-central Counties were also adversely impacted by the same heavy rains which were exacerbated in gravity and severity by a second series of heavy rains on June 17 and 18, 1996, which caused widespread flash flooding to occur throughout the creek and stream systems; and

   Whereas, the series of heavy rains and subsequent flooding has resulted in extensive road closures, damage to roads, streets, bridges, private homes, businesses, and continued adverse life safety impacts for the general population of Beaver, Cambria and Crawford Counties; and

   Whereas, investigations by state agencies of recently developing conditions indicate that additional resources of the Commonwealth may be needed to assist county and municipal efforts to mitigate and contend with the magnitude and severity of this continuing and expanding disaster emergency;

   Now Therefore, pursuant to the provisions of Subsection 7301(c) of the Emergency Management Services Code (35 Pa.C.S.A. Section 7101 et seq.), I do hereby amend my Proclamation of June 14, 1996, as follows:

   1.  The counties of Beaver, Cambria and Crawford are now declared to be in a state of disaster emergency and are added to the previously designated disaster emergency area.

   2.  This Proclamation Amendment shall take effect immediately.

   Given under my hand and the Seal of the Governor at the City of Harrisburg, this twenty-second day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and ninety-six, and of the Commonwealth the two hundred and twentieth.
