Governor Mary Fallin has declared a State of Emergency for all 77 Oklahoma counties due to the winter storm impacting the state.
Because the weather included prolonged sub-freezing temperatures, dangerous road conditions and power outages, emergency management authorities recommended issuing this declaration before the full brunt of the storm arrived.
Governor Fallin warns Oklahomans to stay off the roads if at all possible and use extreme caution if you have to drive.
Before the storm hit Fallin stated, “The weather is bad and getting worse. “Emergency personnel are coordinating with state and local officials to ensure we are prepared and ready for whatever comes our way.”
Fallin’s Executive order will last 30 days.
