Cornyn Issues Statement Following Landfall of Hurricane Harvey

AUSTIN—U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) Saturday released the following statement after Hurricane Harvey made landfall along the Texas Gulf Coast:

“Our Texas communities affected by this severe hurricane continue to be in my prayers, as are the first responders and emergency personnel who are working around the clock. The threat posed by Harvey is extreme, and Texans should continue to heed the warnings of local officials and emergency personnel.

“My staff and I will remain in close contact with FEMA, the Governor’s office, and local officials in impacted areas as Texas continues to endure this dangerous storm. Thank you to all Texans who will be helping those in need in the days and weeks ahead.”

Senator Cornyn’s website will be updated with the most current information on available shelters, state assistance, federal disaster assistance, and other resources.

Senator Cornyn was briefed by the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Brock Long, and the Chief of the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM), Nim Kidd, on Thursday about storm preparations.
