WASHINGTON—U.S. Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), along with U.S. Congressmen Henry Cuellar (TX-28), Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15), and Filemon Vela (TX-34), urged President Trump to issue a federal disaster declaration in response to extreme rain and severe flooding recently in the Rio Grande Valley.

 

 

“The Governor and local officials have informed us that the losses and property damage in these areas are of a magnitude that is beyond the response capability of the state and local government,” they wrote. “We urge you to strongly support this request and provide any and all emergency measures afforded by the approval of a disaster declaration.  We stand ready and willing to assist in any way possible to ensure prompt evaluation of this request.”

 

 

The signed letter is below.
