Press Release

Long Branch, NJ– Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement on Hurricane Matthew.

“My thoughts and prayers are with all those in the path of Hurricane Matthew, including those who have already lost their lives in Haiti and throughout the Caribbean. As the Hurricane begins to impact the Atlantic Coast, I am impressed by the efforts of officials, law enforcement, first responders, and local residents who are doing their part to prepare and keep their neighbors safe. The U.S. is working with response teams on the ground to provide emergency relief items to help those suffering in Haiti and thousands of National Guard troops have been deployed in Florida, North Carolina and Georgia.

“It is our responsibility to help our fellow Americans and I will be working with my colleagues to ensure that there are necessary resources to recover from Hurricane Matthew.”
