FEMA Sending Relief to Texas
The Federal Emergency Management Agency is sending generators and other supplies to Texas to help the state cope with power outages after a severe winter storm, Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, said.
Our team and FEMA continue to monitor the situation in Texas, as well as other states in the storm’s path that might be impacted. We remain in close contact with states across the affected area to ensure any federal support requirements are met. FEMA has supplied generators to Texas and is preparing to move diesel into the state to ensure the continued availability of backup power, which of course is a major issue on the ground to key critical infrastructure, including communications, hospitals and water. FEMA’s also supplying Texas with water and blankets at their request. We are preparing to quickly process requests from other states for emergency assistance. That’s how the process typically works. And we urge people in the affected states to, of course, listen to their emergency management, management officials.
