Governor Hobbs Issues Declaration of Emergency to Repair Damages After Flooding in Yavapai County

Governor Katie Hobbs has issued a Declaration of Emergency in response to flooding in Yavapai County. The declaration allows the Governor to provide emergency funding, resources, and support to repair infrastructure as the community recovers from recent heavy rains in March.

“Camp Verde and other nearby communities will get some much needed relief after getting hit with extreme weather last month,” Governor Hobbs said. “The Declaration of Emergency will allow this area to repair critical infrastructure damaged by flooding.”

The Governor may proclaim a state of emergency upon the request of a city, town, county, tribe, or state agency that has determined an emergency exists that is beyond their capacity to recover from without assistance from the state.

The declaration covers the damages caused by flooding between March 15 and March 23.
