Urging FEMA to Reconsider Assessments of Flood and Storm Damage to Cameron and Hidalgo Counties to Ensure all Texans Receive Federal Aid Needed to Rebuild

This past summer, Cameron and Hidalgo Counties experienced devastating flooding which displaced many Texans from their homes and businesses. I joined Senator John Cornyn, Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, Rep. Henry Cuellar, and Rep. Filemon Vela in sending a letter to FEMA’s Administrator Long urging FEMA to reconsider its assessments of the flood and storm damage to Cameron and Hidalgo Counties. It is critical that Administrator Long and FEMA reevaluate the damage assessments for Cameron and Hidalgo Counties to ensure all the Texans in those areas receive the federal aid they need to rebuild their communities.
Our prayers continue to be with those Americans recovering in Central Texas, and from Hurricanes Matthew and Florence. These devastating natural disasters are a stark reminder of the importance of taking all steps necessary to prepare our homes and families for any future weather event.
