September 29, 2022

Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), released the following statement on Hurricane Ian as the storm approaches North Carolina:

“As officials begin to assess the extent of Hurricane Ian’s catastrophic damage in Florida, my thoughts and prayers are with the 2.5 million families without power and those forced to evacuate. This is a historic storm, and it’s not over yet.

“On Friday, the storm is expected to once again gather force as it approaches North Carolina. I’m urging everyone to continue taking this storm seriously. Please listen to guidance from local and state officials. 

“I’m grateful for the steps Governor Cooper and state leaders have already taken to ready our emergency response and keep North Carolinians safe.”
