WV Delegates Ask for Aid
West Virginia's congressional delegation is asking President Barack Obama to approve the state's request for federal disaster aid. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin wants a major disaster declaration after the storms in mid-June resulted in flooding, landslides and mudslides. U.S. Senators Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin and Representatives Shelley Moore Capito, Nick Rahall and David McKinley sent a letter Friday to the president asking him to review and approve the request.
