With this designation, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is authorized to provide federal resources, including direct Federal assistance. Congressman Rick Allen (R-GA-12) issued the following statement:

“I thank the Federal Emergency Management Agency and President Trump for issuing an Emergency Declaration for counties in my district and throughout Southeast Georgia in a timely manner. I am proud that our President is taking these hurricanes seriously, and I believe his actions will save lives. Having this designation will aid our families and businesses in rebuilding after any damage from Hurricane Irma.”
