17 September 2017, 01:15 | Rodolfo Wallace

The Governor has pledged to see how NY can provide assistance to jumpstart recovery in affected areas.

"New Yorkers know first-hand the damage Mother Nature's fury can cause, and we are proud to be providing expertise, equipment, and personnel to support the U.S. Virgin Islands on their path to recovery, because helping neighbors in need is the NY way", Cuomo said.

Gov. Cuomo on Friday toured storm-ravaged St. Thomas and St. John with a delegation of state officials to evaluate the damage inflicted by Hurricane Irma.

The aftermath also threatens the Islands' economy.

The Democrat visited the Virgin Islands Friday to survey storm damage to better understand how NY can assist in the recovery.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Thursday $25 million in federal funding will be distributed throughout New York to address the opioid crisis. NY has already deployed aircraft and personnel to help with search and rescue.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is headed to the U.S. Virgin Islands to assess damage from Hurricane Irma and see how his state can assist in the recovery.

Cuomo departed Friday morning for the Caribbean islands and plans return home in the evening.

Steve Choi, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition - which has organized a number of actions in response to Trump's immigration enforcement agenda - said the move is a "forceful statement from Governor Cuomo that immigrants are not the enemy".

Azzopardi said Cuomo's office sought guidance from the state's Joint Commission on Public Ethic, and it "determined that based on the emergency situation and circumstances this donation was permissible under the relevant state laws and guidelines".

He said he is only focused on NY and his re-election bid. "I'm focusing on being the best governor in this state", Cuomo responded. "I focus on one thing at a time".
