BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County has declared a local emergency due to storms from November of 2018 to February of 2019.

The proclamation was announced by County Chief Administrative Officer Shari McCracken. The Board of Supervisors will consider ratifying the proclamation at an upcoming special meeting. 

The county executed the proclamation in response to damage caused to county roads from heavy rain and flooding, as well as heavy winds which caused downed trees. 

The proclamation allowed the county to access more resources to assist with fixing local roads and helping residents affected by rising water levels and flooding.
