Officials Ask for Help Before Next Hurricane Season
(TNS) – Local government officials from coastal communities battered by Hurricane Harvey voiced anxieties and frustrations about the recovery process – and the fact that hurricane season is only three months away – to a Texas House subcommittee Tuesday.
Just days before the six-month anniversary of the devastating hurricane, the Texas House Appropriations Subcommittee on Disaster Impact and Recovery met in Victoria, where mayors and county leaders shared lists of projects needed to be undertaken so communities would be protected from future storms.
Many of the government leaders who came from communities spanning from Fulton to Victoria said they didn’t have a place for residents or first responders to take shelter.
