San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after President Obama granted federal Individual Assistance resources to help families affected by the recent magnitude-6.0 earthquake in northern California:
“The President’s approval of FEMA Individual Assistance disaster funds for Napa and Solano counties is welcome news for our friends and neighbors across the Bay Area. Individual Assistance will provide a needed boost for our region to pick up the pieces and move forward. With these resources, families and communities shaken by the earthquake will be able to recover and rebuild stronger than ever.
“Time and again, we see the resilience and strength of the Bay Area community. Due in no small part to Congressman Mike Thompson’s advocacy and support, we are seeing so much progress. We are grateful for the President’s leadership, thankful for resources and skills offered by FEMA, and confident in our future.”
