Press Release

WASHINGTON, DCCongressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) today released the following statement ahead of Hurricane Florence’s landfall:

“We face an imminent threat from Hurricane Florence.  North Carolinians need to get ready for this storm now and take steps to protect their families and property.  State and federal resources are being positioned to properly prepare for the effects of the storm.  I am suspending my work in Washington, D.C. to be in my Congressional district and assist my constituents.”

Yesterday, Congressman Butterfield was joined by North Carolina’s entire Congressional delegation in sending a letter to President Trump requesting the approval of Governor Roy Cooper’s Emergency Declaration in advance of Hurricane Florence’s landfall.  This will help speed federal aid for North Carolina.

Our office has compiled hurricane preparedness information for constituents of the First District of North Carolina which can be found online here
