Catawba County Board of Commissioners Chair Katherine W. Barnes declared a State of Emergency for Catawba County at 12 p.m. on Friday, July 5, in response to serious flooding in several areas of the county.

The declaration does not impose any restrictions, but does authorize Catawba County Emergency Management to execute the county’s emergency operations plan and allows for the requesting of resources from the State of North Carolina to assist in dealing with this emergency.
