This Week in South Florida: Brett Howard

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – President Joe Biden committed to long term disaster assistance this weekend as he and the first lady got a firsthand look at Hurricane Idalia’s aftermath.

Idalia stormed ashore on Florida Gulf Coast as a Category 3 hurricane last week, and as of Sunday, 13 Florida counties are included in a major disaster declaration.

Miami Dade, Broward and Monroe counties are not among them, but the two latest I-storms, Ian and Idalia, have current and critical lessons for South Florida.

FEMA Federal Coordinating Officer Brett Howard joined This Week in South Florida host Glenna Milberg to discuss, and their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
