Halifax County establishes disaster recovery task force

During April, at least 30 tornadoes were recorded in Virginia, two of which impacted Halifax County. One person lost their life, and more than 10 were injured in Halifax County. Thirteen homes were destroyed and more than twenty five were damaged in Halifax County by the April storms. Over four hundred volunteers from across the state came to our neighbors in need. Yet, still there are families without a permanent place of residence, some who lost their only means of transportation, and many who simply do not know where to begin. Halifax County residents and volunteer groups have been working tirelessly to assist those in need. Emergency Services personnel have worked diligently in recovery operations for the last few weeks and to identify any unmet needs in our community.
