Office of the Vice President
STATEMENT BY THE VICE PRESIDENT
Tipper and I were deeply saddened and concerned to learn of the tornadoes that swept through South Georgia and throughout the region this morning -- claiming at least a dozen lives, and causing scores of injuries.
I want the families of the affected states to know that our administration is working very hard to target relief efforts. Our personnel are already on the ground, and we're going to do everything we can to monitor the situation, and help the families who have been affected.
But I want to say on behalf of both Tipper and myself: our thoughts are with the survivors, and with those who have lost loved ones. As we help you rebuild, we're going to hold you in the very center of our prayers.
