This storm uniquely affected West Virginia with not only heavy winds and rain, but also snow accumulation of 50 inches in the mountains. Emergency responders and our National Guard were pushed to the limit by power outages that affected nearly one million West Virginians, by the need to vigorously monitor water levels of many affected rivers, and by having to quickly create emergency shelters across the state. Needless to say, with that kind of impact, the work is ongoing. That is why I asked for additional assistance from FEMA to help in recovery efforts, which I submitted in testimony to the Senate Subcommittee on Homeland Security.

Manchin's Message from the Hill to the Mountains

"Life is Old There" -- Our Responsibility to our Seniors

So serving seniors is an important issue in our great state. It was one of my top priorities as Governor. It is one of my top priorities as Senator.
