Washington County has approved a declaration of local disaster after the winter storm swept across the area last week.

The declaration was originally approved Feb. 16 by County Judge John Durrenberger. Washington County Commissioners Court approved to extend the local disaster declaration on Tuesday as it was initially approved to stay in place for seven days. It will remain in effect until further notice.
