Gov. Bob Wise announced that a federal Major Disaster Declaration for West Virginia has been granted by the President because of recent flooding in the state.

The declaration allows residents in Fayette, Lincoln and Logan counties to apply for Individual Assistance grants, which are designed to help residents recover some flood-related expenses.
