Joe Biden declares Texas a “major disaster” area after storm Beryl

The president of USA, Joe Bidendeclared a “major disaster” area in the state of Texas on Tuesday after the passage of tropical storm Beryl.

The measure, announced by the White Housewill unlock federal funds to help with infrastructure reconstruction efforts and support the urgent needs of populations affected by the storm.

In an interview with The Houston Chronicle, Biden said the distribution of emergency aid in the southern state was delayed because the White House was unable to contact the local government.

The president said he had trouble “locating” the governor of Texas, the Republican Greg Abbottto obtain the necessary paperwork in the disaster declaration process.

The southern leader has been on an eight-day tour of East Asia since Friday to promote Texas to investors. Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick has thus been put in charge of the state government during the Republican’s trip.
