I have declared a state of emergency for Henderson County ahead of a possible ice storm tomorrow. The declaration will be reviewed on Friday. The declaration urges local citizens to stay home in icy conditions if at all possible. County offices will be closed until further notice. It also gives the county more flexibility in responding in case the storm becomes a serious emergency. Thank you, and stay safe.
