The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) extended a Regional Emergency Declaration until July 2, 2019 due to flooding events across these states:
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
The emergency declaration waives hours-of-service requirements for those providing assistance to the affected states, including the delivery of fuel, equipment, and supplies. The declaration does not apply to those unaffected by the flooding.
The waiver is effective until 11:59 pm July 2, 2019. Drivers operating under the terms of the FMCSA Regional Declaration may keep a copy of the declaration in the vehicle.
The latest guidance on emergency declarations and waivers by the National Association of State Energy Officials is available here. Please direct any questions to or share new information with Sarah Reboli, NPGA Deputy Counsel, Regulatory Affairs.
