RAEFORD, N.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement after traveling across the eighth district and stopping in every county to meet with Emergency Management officials and other local leaders, learn more about response and recovery efforts, and talk with constituents in shelters. On Saturday, Rep.

“My wife Renee and I are heartbroken to see the devastation from Hurricane Florence, and we will continue to pray for our state,” said Rep. Hudson. “Here in Hoke County, we experienced pretty bad flooding that forced evacuations, threatened our dams, washed away roads and damaged homes. I’m pleased with the coordination between local, state and federal partners on preparation and response efforts. I’ll continue to make this a team effort to ensure we have what we need to rebuild.”
