Governor Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency for Marin, Mendocino, San Mateo and Ventura counties because of damage to roads and highways caused by recent winter storms.
The emergency proclamation tells the Department of Transportation to request immediate assistance through the Federal Highway Administration's Emergency Relief Program.
Rainstorms that swept across California beginning on Nov. 30 brought high winds, heavy rain and flooding. The proclamation says the storms caused damage to roads and highways because of mudflows, debris, floods and erosion.
