Wolf administration helps 2,000 hurricane victims in Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Traveling Resource and Information Fairs across the state have provided valuable information to numerous hurricane evacuees who left their home of Puerto Rico due to devastation from the 2017 storm. 

“When an emergency strikes, we must unite in solidarity and support. Assisting our fellow Americans is a Pennsylvania tradition,” Gov. Tom Wolf said. “We will continue providing our support to those there and to those arriving in our state. I thank countless public and private entities lending a hand to those in need.”

State agencies partnered with local and county governments and community organizations to bring information to cities with the highest numbers of evacuees. The goal is to provide those evacuees with the knowledge of valuable community resources available to them. 

“It is heartening to witness the great partnership between government staff at the local, county, state, and federal level to help individuals and families recover from such terrible devastation,” said Acting Secretary of State Robert Torres.
