Abbott Declares State of Disaster in 24 Additional Texas Counties

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared a state of disaster in an additional 24 Texas counties Monday, due to recent damage from thunderstorms, tornadoes and flooding.

Earlier Monday, Abbott today declared a state of disaster in an additional 24 Texas counties: Archer, Bastrop, Caldwell, Cass, Collin, Dewitt, Fannin, Grayson, Harrison, Hays, Henderson, Hidalgo, Hill, Houston, Kendall, Jasper, Johnson, Newton, Nueces, Parker, San Jacinto, Walker, Wichita and Wilson counties, authorizing further mobilization of state resources to assist impacted communities. Additional counties may be added to the declaration as the situation develops.

“The State of Texas has taken brisk action in dispatching all available resources to aid those affected by this severe weather system, and I strongly urge all Texans to exercise every possible precaution to ensure their safety and the safety of their families and neighbors,” Abbott said in a prepared statement released Monday morning. “My thoughts and prayers are with all the communities that are suffering as a result of this weather disaster, and I am grateful for the first responders who have worked tirelessly to provide shelter, care and resources to all impacted areas.”

Yikes, hoping hard it'll give them a break soon! Hmm... we have all sorts of equipment and military down there for Jade Helm. Oh heck, they are supposedly all undercover/stealthy, won't be allowed to help.  Doh! :1XqXnoz: All kidding aside, wow, that many counties is crazy!
