Governor Mike Parson has signed an executive order activating the Missouri State Emergency Operations Plan and the National Guard in response to the severe weather which pushed its way across the state on Friday.
The governor says that we need to be ready, as a state, to ensure that all necessary resources are available if extreme disruptions and damages affect our communities.
Unless otherwise terminated or extended, the executive order will expire on April 30th.
Governor Mike Parson signed Executive Order 23-03, activating the Missouri State Emergency Operations Plan and Missouri National Guard in response to severe weather. Parts of Missouri are already experiencing severe weather with more forecasted across the state throughout the evening.

We stand ready to assist and urge all Missourians to heed weather warnings and to take precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones.”
