President Joe Biden announced Thursday that the federal government will fully cover relief costs related to Hurricane Fiona for Puerto Rico for the next month.

“I’ve authorized 100% — 100% — federal funding for debris removal, search and rescue, water restoration and shelter and food for the whole month.
