Elaine Duke: Harvey Is ‘Unprecedented’ in Terms of the Volume of Rain

‘Right now we’re focusing on this specific disaster’

EXCERPT:

DUKE: "Right now we’re focusing on this specific disaster and assuring we have the appropriate funding and programs in place. I think that the planning that the communities do has grown over the years and we’re looking at having grant programs that are appropriate to have them continue their planning, but, you know, many of these communities including Texas, has made extraordinary progress in its planning for disasters. This particular storm was unprecedented in terms of volume of rain, and -- and -- and that’s what we’re focusing on now."
