In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Maria and Irma, the Congressional PORTS Caucus hosted a briefing on how ports prepare for hurricanes, how ports recover from them and the federal government’s role in these processes this morning. There is no doubt, the recovery of our ports is a matter of national security.

Panelists included: Phyllis Saathoff, Port Freeport; Mark McAndrews, Port of Pascagoula; Chris Fisher, Port of Beaumont and Commander Brian McSorley, U.S. Coast Guard
