|After a Jan. 17 letter to President Bush from Gov. Schwarzenegger, the federal government has declared a state of emergency from the winter storms that struck much of northern California around the new year.|
The declaration makes federal funds available to affected individuals in the 10 counties of Contra Costa, Del Norte, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Sacramento, Siskiyou, Solano, and Sonoma.
"This is great news for the many Californians who suffered as a result of the winter storms," said Governor Schwarzenegger. "The damage was terrible and I commend the federal government for heeding our request to provide assistance to the victims in rebuilding their property and their lives."
Some reference to the "Collectinator" soon too follow, I'm sure.
