This is a Joke my Dad (who is Catholic) once told me when I was young. Please. As you indicated, Mr. President, it’s one of the strongest hurricanes to ever hit this part of the country, but the experience, skill, and expertise of the entire DHS response and relief efforts have been mobilized, are in the field today responding. It’s no coincidence, either, that it sits in a community with an above-average poverty rate. The fact that the coronavirus outbreak has lingered due to a bumbling federal response was always going to complicate what is becoming an exceptional hurricane season, but now here we are. Weather Channel reporters take their job seriously ... maybe too seriously, 'cause they were seriously in danger while reporting from the eye of Hurricane Laura, and this intense video proves it. A lot of people went to Baton Rouge, and then they ended up getting the majority of impact there. And now we have vaccines coming very soon. Covid hospitalizations and deaths are on the rise nationwide. And Hurricane Laura brought that eyewall of 150-mile-an-hour winds. But I have to say, they should open up their states.

Actual storm surge, about three feet. You have signed up for the "Confronting the Caliphate" series. And, of course, keeping our people safe in the field. THE PRESIDENT: Very shortly. So thank you again for being here today and showing your support to the men and women of FEMA.
