U.S. Sen. Bob Casey pushes for disaster declaration in Centre, other counties after severe weather

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey wrote a letter to the Federal Emergency Management Agency seeking approval of a disaster declaration request covering 14 counties, including Centre.

The request comes after storms and flooding that damaged parts of Pennsylvania in late June.

A tornado touch-down in Boalsburg caused some of the damage in this area, and Centre County also saw flooding and road closures.
