Biden visits Puerto Rico and promises 86 billion won in hurricane damage relief

U.S. President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden visited Puerto Rico, the United States, affected by Hurricane Fiona on the 3rd (local time).

President Biden said in a speech that he will provide more than $60 million to Puerto Rico’s coastline to better prepare for typhoons. said

The funds will come from the $1.2 trillion infrastructure budget passed by Congress last year and will be used to build flood warning systems, including flood barriers, the White House explained.

In his speech, President Biden also mentioned the situation in Florida, which was hit by hurricane Ion, and announced plans to visit Florida on the 5th, saying, “I know many of you have relatives in Florida.”

“At a time like this, we have come together despite all our differences, including politics,” Biden said.

Hurricane Ian, one of the most massive hurricanes in history, which began in Florida last week and swept through the southeastern United States, is now extinct, but has caused enormous damage mainly in Florida.

CNN reported that the death toll in Florida alone exceeded 100, and in Lee County, where the damage was concentrated, 54 people were counted so far.
