Group of federal workers wins Powerball jackpot
You might forgive these federal disaster workers if they're a little distracted from their jobs right now. A worker at the Federal Emergency Management Agency in West Virginia says 15 of his co-workers hold the winning ticket for a ten million dollar Powerball jackpot from last week. George Alter adds he was not part of the pool. The winning ticket was bought at a convenience store in Charles Town. Alter says it's been kind of crazy around the office since word got out. Most of the winners work at FEMA's Mount Weather site on the Virginia-West Virginia border. They plan to come to lottery headquarters next week to claim their prize.
The workers will share the lump sum cash option of just under six million dollars.
