WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden will visit Louisiana on Friday, September 3, to survey storm damage from Hurricane Ida and recovery efforts, the White House confirmed Wednesday.

The president will also meet with state and local leaders from impacted communities. Further details on the visit from the White House will follow.

U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) today released a statement on President Biden’s visit:

“We thank President Biden for coming down to help him understand the magnitude of the situation here in southeast Louisiana. We know from bitter experience with Hurricane Laura that aid can be delayed too long,” said Dr. Cassidy. “We thank the federal partners who are already here helping with the recovery, and we will ask the President once again that supplemental aid be delivered to southwest Louisiana and expedited for southeast Louisiana.”
