LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - At a special called meeting Tuesday morning, Angelina County's commissioners voted for a second 30-day extension on the county's disaster declaration in connection to extensive recent flooding.
Today's Angelina County Commissioner's court meeting discussion was just minutes long, as the vote to extend the declaration was unanimous.
The first time Angelina County commissioners voted to extend the disaster declaration came during an emergency meeting that was held on June 2.
"We've had a lot of damage to our county roads and infrastructure," Emergency Management Coordinator Don Morris said during the previous meeting. "We've had a lot of people flooded out in their homes."
Angelina County Judge Wes Suiter said in a previous story that county officials are worried about water coming into the area from Dallas via the rivers.
"We still see ourselves threatened by possible harm to property and life," Suiter said today.
