WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Federal resources and funds were made available today to support hurricane response efforts in North Carolina under an emergency declaration issued by President Clinton, according to the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA Director James Lee Witt said the President took the action following a review of the agency's analysis of the state's expedited request for emergency assistance because of Hurricane Floyd, which began affecting the North Carolina coast today.
