A total of 15 western counties are included in the Governor's action.  Perdue cited snows, starting December 18th, then heavy rains and ice storms in her declaration, noting power outages, road damage and more, estimating recovery costs at $12.5 million.  The state is asking the feds for $9 million, and the declaration is the first step in seeking federal funds.
