Turner: FEMA Needs To Move Quickly On Federal Assistance

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is urging the federal government to move quick on providing assistance to Harvey victims. He told reporters today people are still coping, but will start getting angry the longer they spend time in shelters and not in their homes. Turner also noted the repairs shouldn’t be done “on the cheap” because “sooner or later,” people will have to pay the piper. Turner says issues with the bayous and the Addicks and Barker dams are under federal purview and not the city’s responsibility. He’s hoping people will have the same commitment to helping others after the waters have receded.
