LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KAIT) – A barrage of severe storms in the Natural State is forcing state leaders to take action.
On Friday, March 3, Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she would be declaring a state of emergency after severe storms hit the state.
The execution order comes after tornadoes and flooding hit cities on Wednesday and Thursday, causing a high amount of damage.
In a news release, Sanders’ office said it would direct $250,000 from the Emergency Response Fund of the Governor’s Disaster Fund to be used at the discretion of the Director of the Division of Emergency Management.
