West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice declared a state of emergency for Mingo County due to damage caused by severe weather that struck last week.

The storm last Friday caused flash flooding, downed trees and power lines and caused roads to be blocked.

As part of the emergency declaration announced Monday, the governor directed the West Virginia Emergency Management Division to implement the state’s emergency operations plan as necessary and mobilize appropriate personnel and resources to respond to the emergency.
