This is the April 12, 2018 hearing titled "Are We Ready for the Next Hurricane Season? Status of Preparation and Response Capabilities for 2018," held before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. From the opening statement of Roger Wicker: "Thank you for waiting during two relatively early morning votes for the Senate. And I'm happy to chair this timely hearing after the 2017 hurricane season and Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate. My home State of Mississippi is especially vulnerable to natural disasters, and the memory of Hurricane Katrina still remains fresh. I want to take this opportunity to remind the Committee that Barry Myers, President Trump's nominee to be the NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] Administrator, still awaits confirmation from the Senate. I think as this hearing progresses, we should be mindful of that." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jamie M. Miller, Allen Owen, Charles Lindsey, Jennifer Pipa, Timothy Gallaudet, Linda L. Fagan, and T. Bella Dinh-Zarr.
