On July 14, U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Acting Secretary Kevin K. McAleenan visited the National Response Coordination Center (NRCC) at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) headquarters in Washington, DC to receive a brief on the ongoing response efforts for Tropical Storm Barry.

“Thank you to the men and women at FEMA and their partners across the country who work tirelessly to coordinate response and recovery during this storm,” Acting Secretary McAleenan said. “It is an honor to work alongside you in pursuit of our shared DHS mission.”

FEMA Acting Administrator Pete Gaynor briefed Acting Secretary McAleenan on the current status of the storm and discussed how heavy rainfall continues as the storm moves through northern Louisiana and into Arkansas. Acting Secretary McAleenan was assured that FEMA has been working in close coordination with local, state, federal, and tribal partners in Louisiana, Mississippi, and other affected areas to assist in response efforts.

Following the briefing, Acting Secretary McAleenan was given a tour of the response operations in the NRCC to observe the complex coordination efforts of FEMA underway during this emergency. He also met with many of the different federal teams working from FEMA and thanked them individually for their diligence in providing a road to recovery to the American people in the storm’s path.
