WASHINGTON — FEMA Administrator Pete Gaynor completed a two-day visit to Louisiana today – his fourth since hurricanes Laura, Sally, Delta and Zeta devastated the state, as federal workers are on the ground, working around the clock making roads accessible and providing emergency power.

Administrator Gaynor, along with FEMA Region 6 Regional Administrator Tony Robinson, met with state and local officials, including Gov. John Bel Edwards and New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, to help address the area’s needs.

Additionally, President Trump amended the Major Disaster Declaration for Louisiana as a result of Hurricane Laura. The amendment allows for 100% federal cost share for 30 days for both debris removal and emergency protective measures.
