“We have seen the tremendous power and destruction of this past weekend’s storms in neighboring states, and with areas of Missouri already impacted, we want to ensure state resources are available should significant disruptions or damage occur,” Governor Parson said. “This action enables the state to be better prepared and ready to assist our communities. We encourage Missourians to follow their local forecasts, heed all weather warnings, and take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones.”
