Biden to survey Mississippi storm damage and recovery efforts
Share this

The White House said the trip was part of an effort to reaffirm its “commitment to supporting the people of Mississippi as long as it takes.”

Biden told reporters on the tarmac at Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina on Tuesday that he planned to visit Mississippi, where Republican Gov. Tate Reeves declared a state of emergency in affected areas at the beginning of the week.

On Sunday, Biden approved a major disaster declaration in Mississippi, making federal funding available to people affected by the tornadoes in Carroll, Humphreys, Monroe and Sharkey counties.
