President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency in the District of Columbia on Monday granting the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency the power and resources needed to carry out disaster relief efforts.
A statement released on WhiteHouse.gov reveals: “The President’s action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the District of Columbia.”
The declaration was enacted through the Stafford Act which Intellihub founder and editor-in-chief Shepard Ambellas covered in April of 2020 on Coast To Coast AM with George Noory.
“Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment, and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Emergency protective measures, limited to direct Federal assistance, will be provided at 100 percent Federal funding,” according to a statement made by the White House.
