A month into work and faced by the devastating COVID-19 Pandemic, Biden is seeing his disaster management abilities tested after winter storms plunged Texas, Oklahoma and adjoining states into an abnormal profound freeze that left millions shuddering in homes that lost warmth, water and power.
Atleast 69 deaths have been reported across the U.S. as a result of this climate catastrophe.
The White House reported on Saturday that the president had announced a major disaster in Texas, and he has requested that government offices allocate extra resources to address the misery.
Biden came into office Jan. 20 promising to handle a progression of crises, beginning with the COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating effect on the economy. He highlighted systematic racism and environmental change as main concerns. Furthermore, presently he’s fighting with storms that have jeopardized Americans as well as postponed the shipment and supply of millions of dosages of COVID vaccines.
Biden, who offered himself during the presidential campaign as the accomplished and sympathetic leader the country needed right now as expected, is working on several fronts to address the crises — and to try not to repeat the mishaps of his predecessors who got tripped by lacking adequate plans or inhumane reactions in the midst of disasters.
