10:38 am
house lawn with more on that. peter, good morning, what did the president have to say? >> reporter: good morning to you. the public comments from the president coming just as he wrapped up his daily briefing alongside the administrator of fema. they can't afford to be complacent, even though last night the storm didn't hit the florida coastline, suggesting people north of jacksonville and the georgia area now have to be having called the governors of all the states in that region overnight declaring states of emergency in georgia after already having done so in florida. cueing up the tape, the president finishing these remarks a matter of moments ago, what he said, storm surge is one of the biggest concerns. if we can right now, we want to
10:39 am
moments ago in the oval office. >> obviously, everybody has been tracking the course of hurricane matthew, and i just received an update from our fema director, craig fugate, as well as the rest of our national security team, and i just wanted to make a couple of key points. first, what we're seeing now is florida and some of the largest population centers, working its way north, and the big concern that people are having right now is the effect it could have in areas like jacksonville, on through georgia. and we've seen some significant damage in portions of south florida, i think the bigger
10:40 am
storm surge. many of you will remember hurricane sandy, where initially people thought this doesn't look as bad as we thought and then suddenly you get massive storm surge and a lot of people were severely affected. and so i just want to emphasize to everybody that this is still that the potential for storm surge, flooding, loss of life, and severe property damage continues to exist, and people continue to need to follow the instructions of their local officials over the course of the next 24, 48, 72 hours. those of you who live in georgia, i think, should be
10:41 am
there's been a lot of emphasis on florida, but this is going to keep moving north through florida and south carolina, there are large population centers there that could be vulnerable, so pay attention to what your local officials are telling you. if they tell you to evacuate, you need to get out of there and move to higher ground, because storm surge can move very quickly and people can think that they are out of the woods and then suddenly get hit and not be in a position in which they and their families are safe so, pay attention to local officials. in the meantime, i've been in contact with the governors of all four of the potentially affected states. i want to thank them all for their leadership. there's been strong cooperation between federal and state and local officials. fema has worked diligently to preposition resources, assets,
10:42 am
the hurricane moves north, what craig and his team will be doing is moving those resources and assets further north so that any place that happens to get hit badly will be in a position to immediately come in and help. but i really want to emphasize the governors have been on top of this, state and local officials have been on top of this. they are the ones who are tracking most closely what is happening in your particular community, your particular area. you need to pay attention to them, do what they say, do not be a hold out here, because we can always replace property, but we can't replace lives. i want to thank craig and his whole team, as well as department of homeland security, my own national security team, for really staying on top of this. we're going to monitor this throughout the weekend. our thoughts and prayers are
10:43 am
affected. you know, it's -- even if the damage in south florida wasn't as bad as it could be, there are people who have been affected and for them, they are going to need help. last point i'd like to make is we're still tracking what happened in areas like haiti that were hit more directly. haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world. it has consistently been hit and battered by a lot of natural disasters to compound what is already great poverty there. we know that hundreds of people have lost their lives and that there's been severe property damage and they are going to need help rebuilding, so i would ask all americans to go to the american red cross and other philanthropic agencies to make
10:44 am
need to do to help people that need it, and we'll continue to provide information if you're interested in how you can help the people of haiti and others. you can go to and we'll provide you some direction in terms of where even the smallest contribution can really make a big difference. all right? thank you very much, everybody. fema is in a good position right now. you know, we had some concerns last year when we were in the midst of budget negotiations. i think that we did a good job of making sure that fema was properly funded and not to make them blush, but we happen to have one of the best public servants in america craig fugate and his team, and they know how to manage their money and use it effectively, so that's not going to be an issue. of course, we always want to be
10:45 am
assessments with respect to damage. we're still on the front end of this hurricane. we're not on the back end, so we don't know bad damage up. we know severe storm could up and we're not going for three,four, days what the ultimate effects of this are. w significant problems togovernme that's always to be have, as st
