OKLAHOMA CITY -

Gov. Mary Fallin extended a state of emergency for all 77 counties for another 30 days due to the winter storms and flooding after the Christmas holiday.

Fallin declared a state of emergency on Nov. 29 after winter storms and flooding impacted the state. The state of emergency was set to last 30 days. 

The governor declared the state of emergency because nearly 200,000 homes are still without power Monday afternoon after another round of freezing rain, ice and sleet pounded the western and central parts of the state, and after heavy rain inundated the eastern part of Oklahoma.

The state of emergency allows state agencies to make emergency purchases related to disaster relief and preparedness. It is the first step toward seeking federal aid if it is deemed necessary.
