U.S. President Joe Biden has approved late Thursday the declaration of emergency in the state of South Carolina on the eve of Hurricane ‘Ian’ making landfall in the state in the coming hours.

With this declaration, state teams will join local and tribal efforts in the face of ‘Ian’, which made landfall Friday in Florida with winds of up to 240 kilometers per hour.

“The President’s action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts (…) and to provide appropriate assistance for necessary emergency measures,” the White House said in a statement.

These emergency measures seek to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the 46 counties of South Carolina.

The FEMA Department is now authorized to identify, mobilize and provide, at its discretion, the equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. In addition, it has been announced that these actions under the Public Assistance program will be 75 percent federally funded.
