President Biden on Saturday announced that he will travel to New Jersey and New York on Tuesday to survey damage from Hurricane Ida.
As the remains of Hurricane Ida moved up the East coast this week, at least five states in the Northeast experienced record-breaking rainfall, causing flooding and falling debris.
At least 48 people died in New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and New York.
The trip will come days after Biden met with residents of Louisiana to offer federal assistance in the aftermath of the storm, which left over 1 million people without power.
Biden on Thursday approved an emergency declaration for New York and New Jersey, ordering federal assistance to support state efforts to rebuilding in the aftermath of the storm and allowing the Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate relief efforts.
Biden also talked with New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) and New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) on Thursday, offering assistance for the states' recovery, the New York Times reports.
