CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Commission on Friday declared a state of emergency due to damages to property from severe storms, a tornado, flooding and other causes Thursday. The emergency declaration allows the County to seek aid from state and federal agencies. It also gives local agencies broader scope in assisting with cleanup. For example, the emergency declaration will allow the County to remove debris from rights-of-way.

Commissioner Garry Marchman explained, “Most of the storm damage was in the White City and Holly Pond areas, but the emergency is for storm damages countywide.”
