Texas storm: Governor says Biden to approve major disaster declaration | FULL

Global News published this video item, entitled “Texas storm: Governor says Biden to approve major disaster declaration | FULL” – below is their description.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Friday said that he had spoken with President Joe Biden who told him Thursday night that he would approve the major disaster declaration that the state was submitting. He said they were waiting on confirmation of the approval.

Abbott said the approval would give Texans the ability to apply for assistance from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which would then provide them with funding to help fix damages to their homes that their insurance companies don’t cover.

He said there were four main priorities they were still focused on, including restoring power to homes still without electricity and restoring clean water back to Texans.

“We know for our fellow Texans this past week has been an enormous challenge, maybe unlike any challenge that you have dealt with before,” he said. “Working together, we’re going to get through this.”
