President Assesses Texas Storm Damage

“You’re saving peoples’ lives,” he told emergency personnel.

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden flew to Houston Friday as part of the president’s assessment of the damage caused by the recent winter storm. He met with local leaders to discuss relief efforts and recovery.

The president toured the Harris County Emergency Operations and the Houston Food Bank. The Bidens’ plans also included a visit to a COVID-19 health center where vaccines are being distributed.

En route on Air Force One, Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters the president wanted to visit Houston because “he likes to see the details and likes to see things in person. He wants to see how the public is engaging and have those conversations and that’s important to him, in terms of his governing style. It’s important to him to hear directly from people on what their needs are.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the people of Texas who are still struggling with the aftermath of the severe winter storm.
  • For those in other parts of the region who felt the same storm but with a lesser impact.
  • For Texas authorities as they assess and respond to necessary adjustments in their power grids.
