United States. Government Publishing Office
This is the November 2, 2017 hearing on "The 2017 Hurricane Season: A Review of Emergency Response and Energy Infrastructure Recovery Efforts," held before the Subcommittee on Energy of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Fred Upton: "So, this year's Atlantic hurricane season was unprecedented. Four named storms in close succession slammed into the Gulf, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. These hurricanes caused catastrophic damage and energy supply disruptions across the country. While Texas and Florida are further down the road to recovery, a humanitarian crisis is unfolding in Puerto Rico--a number of colleagues from this committee have been down there--and the U.S. Virgin Islands, where the majority of folks still remain without power for more than a month after Hurricane Maria made landfall. Today's hearing will review the emergency response and energy recovery efforts in the wake of those storms. It will help us begin to understand what went right and what went wrong, what lessons can be learned, and how we, as policymakers, can identify gaps, so that when the next hurricane hits, we will be better prepared." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Patricia Hoffman, Ray Alexander, DeAnn T. Walker, Robert F. Corbin, Frank Rusco, Thomas A. Fanning, Julio A. Rhymer, Sr., Chet Thompson, Max E. McBrayer, Jr., Ramon-Luis Nieves, and Catherine B. Kennedy.
