We wanted to share two stories from Joplin, Mo. about the ongoing recovery efforts:
- In case you missed it, Administrator Fugate shared an update on Joplin in an interview this morning with National Public Radio. He also focused on the role of the federal government after a disaster strikes.
- Yesterday, players from the National Football League met with disaster survivors and surveyed damages in Joplin, and here are some of the articles recapping the visits.
As the recovery continues in Joplin, we'd like to say "thank you" to the entire emergency management team - state and local officials, the private sector, voluntary, community, and faith-based groups, and especially the public - as we work together to support disaster survivors and the affected community.
We will continue to provide updates on this blog, so check back often.
