Charlton, Santora Call for State of Emergency in Delaware County
8/15/2018
DELAWARE COUNTY - Reps. Alex Charlton (R-Springfield) and Jamie Santora (R-Delaware) sent the following open letter to Gov. Tom Wolf requesting that Pennsylvania declare a State of Emergency in Delaware County as a result of rainfall and flooding that occurred in the region on Monday, Aug. 13,

“We write to request that Pennsylvania declare a State of Emergency in Delaware County as a result of the early morning rainfall and subsequent flooding that occurred on Aug. 13. The severe flooding seen throughout the region has resulted in significant losses: water-damaged homes and cars, businesses unable to reopen, and damaged infrastructure, as well as loss of income to employers and employees unable to reopen their business and return to work.

“The recent storm that struck Delaware County is similar to the storm from late July that caused significant flood damage in Southcentral Pennsylvania. We respectfully request that your office similarly coordinate with the U.S. Small Business Administration to provide disaster relief loans to those affected in Delaware County.

“Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. lt is imperative that we provide our constituents with the necessary relief to allow them to repair, rebuild and resume their daily lives. A declared State of Emergency is vital to helping flood victims recover.”
