“Over half of our state was without power following the massive June storm. The derecho caused sweeping damage across our state, and some areas are still cleaning up debris. I urge FEMA to reconsider their decision to deny individual disaster assistance to residents of West Virginia and hope representatives will accept my invitation to speak with me and state leaders to discuss this decision in-depth,” stated Capito.
