“We are not leaving here, as long as I’m president, ntil every single thing we can do is done,” he added, speaking after getting a briefing from local officials and disaster personnel on the damage from Hurricane Fiona.

As usual, President Joe Biden did not name his predecessor. But when Biden spoke to residents of hurricane-hit Ponce, Puerto Rico on Monday, his main message was clear: Unlike former President Donald Trump, I will be with you until the island recovers from another catastrophic natural disaster.

“I want you to know that I am committed, my entire administration is committed to being with you every step of the way – for as long as it takes,” Biden said.

Joe Biden announce the  funding.

“My asks to you, Mr. President, are straightforward,” Pierluisi said at the event. “We want to be treated in the same way as our fellow Americans in the states in times of need. All American citizens … should receive the same support from the federal government.”

Biden noted that climate change meant that such disasters are not going away. He reiterated a commitment to build Puerto Rico back “better” – making aged infrastructure and in particular, the electrical grid, more resilient to extreme weather.

“We have to ensure that when the next hurricane strikes, Puerto Rico is ready,” Biden said.

How Many people are Die.

“Sixteen versus in the thousands,” Mr. Trump said, comparing the storm’s certified death toll to the 1,833 killed in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina, which he described as a “real catastrophe.”

“You can be very proud of all of your people, all of our people working together,” he said. “Sixteen versus literally thousands of people. You can be very proud.”

The final death count, reported by the Puerto Rican government, was more than 3,000.

Is flood increasing in the U.S

Flooding associated with sea level rise is accelerating, according to an annual report released Tuesday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Ocean water is inundating coastal cities during high tides, even when there is no storm.

Which states U.S has more affected From the Floods?

  • Florida is a particularly volatile state when it comes to both flooding and elections. …
  • The state with the highest percentage of land at risk of flooding, Louisiana was the site of one of the most devastating storms in American history, Hurricane Katrina.
The report projects sea levels along the coastline will rise an additional 10-12 inches by 2050 with specific amounts varying regionally, mainly due to land height changes.
#1: #1: Global warming from climate change means more evaporation and more moisture in the atmosphere, so in areas where it rains, rain can be intensified. Every 1 degree F rise in temperature can mean 4% more water vapor in the air.
