Cornyn on Beryl

Today on the floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed Hurricane Beryl, which made landfall in Texas as a Category One Hurricane this morning and has impacted millions of homes and businesses as it's moved through the southeast and eastern parts of the state. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn's remarks are below, and video can be found here.

"Early this morning, Hurricane Beryl made landfall in Texas as a Category One Hurricane."

"I've reached out to the county judges and mayors in some of the hardest hit areas and assured them that we are monitoring the situation, but more importantly, we are standing by, ready to do anything we can to be of assistance."

"Of course, we'll be working with Governor Abbott and the state officials when it comes to seeking assistance at the federal level for disaster relief."

"I urge all my fellow Texans to follow the guidance of local authorities and do everything possible to stay safe."

"Thank you to those who were on the front lines saving lives as Hurricane Beryl bears down on our state, and to the linemen again repairing the downed lines as quickly as possible."
