Hurricane Florence

Irma Recovery

The Wilmington District is working closely with local officials to coordinate preparedness and response activities.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wilmington District is in constant contact with our federal, state, and local response partners to implement recovery responses.

The Corps conducts emergency response activities under two basic authorities:
  • Public Law 84-99 (Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies)
  • When mission assigned by FEMA under the Stafford Disaster and Emergency Assistance Act.

Under PL 84-99, we provide disaster preparedness services and advanced planning measures designed to reduce damage caused by an impending disaster.

Under the Stafford Act, we support the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA in carrying out the National Response Plan, which calls on 30 federal departments and agencies to provide coordinated disaster relief and recovery operations.
