Biden to tour hurricane damage in Puerto Rico, Florida
Publisher:  TheHill

President Biden will travel in the coming days to Puerto Rico and Florida to tour damage from Hurricane Fiona and Hurricane Ian, respectively, the White House announced late Saturday.

The president and first lady will travel to Puerto Rico on Monday, followed by a trip Wednesday to Florida. The White House did not disclose where the president would visit in either location, or details about who he would meet with.

Biden said earlier in the week he would likely visit Florida and Puerto Rico to look at the aftermath of the hurricanes once conditions allowed him to do so without interfering with emergency responders.

The visit to Florida will be Biden's first since he traveled there after a condo collapse in Surfside last year. The state was slammed by Hurricane Ian, which made landfall as a Category 4 storm and knocked out power for millions of residents.

Biden warned that it could prove to be the deadliest storm in the state's history. Authorities have said roughly 50 people died thus far in the storm as rescue efforts continue.

The president has spoken multiple times on the phone in recent days with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).

Hurricane Fiona hit Puerto Rico last month, wreaking havoc on the power grid and leaving thousands in the dark as they grappled with rain and wind. The storm knocked out much of the same power infrastructure that was badly damaged by Hurricane Maria roughly five years ago.

Biden has in recent days repeatedly pledged he would not forget about Puerto Ricans recovering from the storm.

Biden to visit hurricane-ravaged Florida and Puerto Rico

President Joe Biden will travel to Florida and Puerto Rico next week to survey storm damage and meet with officials and residents after hurricanes battered both regions within a 10-day span.

The White House announced Biden’s travel plans on Saturday after he made clear his intentions to visit both destinations earlier this week. The president and first lady Jill Biden will visit Puerto Rico on Monday and then Florida on Wednesday, the White House said. Biden spoke on Friday about the recovery efforts underway.

“It’s not just a crisis for Florida. This is an American crisis. We’re all in this together,� Biden said in remarks. “I just want the people of Florida to know: We see what you’re going through and we’re with you.�

Hurricane Ian devastated parts of Florida after making landfall on Wednesday. There’s a growing fear that search and rescue efforts will reveal a staggering death count as rescue teams continue to look for people trapped by flood waters. Ian has killed at least 44 people, according to reports from the state’s medical examiners.

More than 1.1 million homes and businesses were still without power on Saturday. The state, with the support of federal and local responders, had performed more than 700 rescues, Florida officials said Friday. More than 1,300 search and rescue workers were looking for survivors on Saturday, officials said, including five teams from out of state.

“We’re just beginning to see the scale of that destruction. It’s likely to rank among the worst in the nation’s history,� Biden said Friday. “You have all seen on television homes and property wiped out. It’s going to take months, years to rebuild. Our hearts go out to all those folks whose lives have been devastated by the storm. America’s heart is literally breaking.�

The recovery efforts around Hurricane Ian have also threatened to overshadow the devastation wrought on Puerto Rico by Hurricane Fiona. That hurricane, which struck the island two weeks ago, has left more than 200,000 people still without power.

The Biden administration has faced criticism from community and nonprofit leaders on the ground, including frustrations that the federal government did not initially cover all of Puerto Rico in the president’s disaster declaration, as well as the slow transfer of federal aid to communities facing catastrophic flooding.

Some Puerto Ricans fear their recovery will become further stalled as the federal government turns its resources and attention to the destruction caused by Ian. Speaking at FEMA on Thursday, Biden said he remains focused on the “recovery of the island,� and he repeated his commitment to Puerto Rico on Friday.

“We’re going to stay with it, stay at it, for as long as it takes,� Biden said.
