WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) thanked President Trump for declaring the Rio Grande Valley a federal disaster area in response to flooding and rain that devastated the region. A state of disaster was declared in Cameron, Hidalgo, and Willacy Counties after experiencing severe flooding that caused widespread property damage to the area.
“I thank President Trump for granting a major disaster declaration for Cameron, Hidalgo and Willacy Counties,” said Congressman Gonzalez. “This declaration will bring desperately needed aid and relief to our communities. I will continue to work with federal, state and local officials to ensure those affected by this disaster receive the necessary resources to begin the recovery and rebuilding process.”
