Governor Newsom Expands Storm State of Emergency to Three Additional Counties  


SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom proclaimed a state of emergency on March 14 to support storm response and relief efforts in the counties of Alpine, Orange and Trinity, which join 40 counties the Governor has previously proclaimed a state of emergency for since the start of severe winter storms in late February.

At Governor Newsom’s request, last week President Biden issued a Presidential Emergency Declaration authorizing federal assistance to support state and local storm response efforts. With storms forecasted to continue through mid-March, California continues to mobilize personnel and resources to impacted communities across California.
