California Communities with Higher Risk of Natural Disasters Getting a Funding Boost

California communities that have a higher risk of natural disasters are getting a big boost in funds. The state Governor’s Office of Emergency Services revealed Thursday that it received more than $180-million in federal funding to be used for those areas. The money will assist with a number of projects like addressing wildfire risks in Nevada County, as well as tackling drought conditions in Kern County. Ryan Buras of Cal OES praised the move saying the funds will go towards “improving our long-term resilience in California.”
