Oklahoma governor extends state of emergency after storm

Ponca City Now - December 29, 2015 9:28 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Gov. Mary Fallin is extending a state of emergency to all 77 Oklahoma counties after another winter storm brought ice to western and central parts of the state and heavy flooding in the east and northeast.

Fallin issued an executive order Monday extending a state of emergency originally declared after a winter storm battered the state last month. The order extends the state of emergency for another 30 days and allows state agencies to make emergency purchases for disaster relief.

Fallin issued a second executive order that temporarily suspends size and weight permits for oversized vehicles transporting supplies and materials for storm relief.

The storm brought ice and freezing rain across much of western, central and northern Oklahoma, and heavy flooding to the east.
