SACRAMENTO – With some conditions improving and firefighters making progress on a number of California wildfires, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. will join U.S. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris tomorrow afternoon in Sonoma County.
Additional details will be provided tomorrow morning.
Earlier today, Governor Brown announced that the state has secured additional federal aid for Napa and Sonoma county residents who have suffered losses due to the fires. Earlier this week, Governor Brown secured a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration to support the state and local response to the fires, within 24 hours of making the request, and joined the state’s top emergency management officials for a briefing at the State Operations Center in Mather. The assistance announced today is the result of California securing amendments to this presidential disaster declaration. The Governor has declared a state of emergency for Solano County, Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties, and Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Nevada and Orange counties due to the effects of the devastating fires burning across California.
More information on California’s emergency response to the fires is available at the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services website. Napa and Sonoma county residents impacted by the fires can apply for federal Individual Disaster Assistance online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by phone at 800-621-3362.
