Oklahoma Governor declares emergency ahead of expected storm

The Associated Press - December 8, 2018 10:01 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has declared a state of emergency ahead of an expected storm that could dump snow, ice, and freezing rain on the state.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch through Saturday night for southwestern Oklahoma, including Oklahoma City.
The weather service says up to 4 inches (10 centimeters) of snow, in addition to a thin layer of ice, could fall in the area.
Fallin’s order issued Thursday allows state agencies to make emergency purchases related to disaster relief and preparedness. It is also a first step toward seeking federal assistance should it be necessary and waives licensing requirements for vehicles bringing in materials and supplies for storm relief.
The executive order will be in effect for 30 days.
