Posted by Warren Krech on February 21, 2013

Governor Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency in response to the statewide winter storm.

The governor has activated the State Emergency Operations Center, and the declaration also lets state agencies coordinate directly with cities and counties for emergency services.

Nixon issued the declaration from his office in the Capitol, where he was among only a few people in the building. The House and Senate cancelled their Thursday sessions.
