Senate Republican Leader Grove says California's 16th Senate District Will Rebuild

SACRAMENTO – Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement regarding the aftermath of two large earthquakes that struck within days of each other:

“I continue to monitor the situation and receive updates from Cal OES on the impact of both massive earthquakes. I am moved by the swift and collaborative response from local, state, and federal agencies. First responders are still evaluating the extent of the damage to commercial and residential infrastructure, but above all I am grateful to God that no lives have been reported lost. 

“I appreciate Governor Newsom’s expeditious response in activating a state of emergency. This action will provide the affected region with immediate resources. The governor’s visit today to California’s 16th Senate District will also allow him to see firsthand the extent of the damage. But we are strong and resilient so I am optimistic that we will quickly rebuild. 

“However, our situation remains unpredictable as officials from OES indicate that we can expect more aftershocks and perhaps even another powerful quake. I urge everyone to be prepared and heed the warnings of first responders,” said Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove.

The office of Senator Grove will be opened this weekend in Bakersfield and Ridgecrest to assist families, business owners, and residents.
