Last updated 12/10/2018 at 2:43pm

Gov. Cooper declared a State of Emergency for all 100 counties prior to the major winter storm this weekend.

Cooper declared a State of Emergency to facilitate movement of any resources needed to respond to the storm and ordered that truck weight, size and hours of service restrictions be waived.

This allowed vehicles carrying essential supplies and equipment and utility trucks working to restore power to get where they are needed quickly.

Declaring a State of Emergency also activates state law against price gouging, or charging too much for goods and services during an emergency.
