RESOLUTION NO. 170740

 

Calling for extensive support for Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria and Irma.

 

WHEREAS, Hurricane Maria directly impacted Puerto Rico early Wednesday morning and is the worst hurricane in modern history to make landfall; and

 

WHEREAS, 500 storm shelters housed roughly 10,000 residents and 200 animals in Puerto Rico Tuesday night in advance of the Hurricane Maria making landfall; and

 

WHEREAS, national assistance has been pledged to aide Puerto Rico but more is likely needed to recover from the devastation of two hurricanes in such a short timeframe; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council requests that FEMA and relief agencies provide the same level of attention to Puerto Rico as has been paid to Florida, Texas, and Louisiana; and

 

WHEREAS, our thoughts and prayers are with all that have been displaced and for those whom mourn the loss of loved ones to this storm; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby stand in support of those affected by Hurricane Maria during this difficult time and honor individuals actively serving those adversely affected by Hurricane Maria and the aftermath.
