Story:
Emergency declared for Duck Valley Indian reservation
 
ELKO — Chairman of the Shoshone-Paiute Tribe Chairman Kyle Prior
declared a state of emergency this morning for the Duck Valley Indian
Reservation as fires have burned over 240 power poles in the south Idaho
and northern Nevada region, causing a power outage that has lasted six
days.
 
The Tribe is helping its community members by supplying households with
water, dry ice, cubed or block ice, propane, flashlights, batteries,
battery-operated fans and generators for the elderly and those with
medical needs. The tribal fire department is providing water to homes
and filling bathtubs with water for sanitation facilities.
