WH: We deployed significant resources to prepare for Ian

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre asserted on Wednesday, at a regular press briefing, that the administration deployed "significant federal resources to the region to prepare for the Hurricane [Ian]."

"We have more than 1,300 federal response workers on the ground in Florida. There are 3.7 million meals and 3.5 million liters of water pre-positioned in Alabama," Jean-Pierre stressed.

In addition, the spokeswoman noted that "110,000 gallons of fuel and 18,000 pounds of propane are pre-staged for immediate deployment," while 300 ambulances will be supporting local officials. She urged the population to "shelter in place," if that was requested.
