The United States has requested from NATO relief support in the form of food supplies.

NATO’s Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Center (EADRCC) is coordinating responses to this request by Allies and NATO’s partners.

A NATO liaison officer has also been dispatched to Washington to work with the US authorities, in particular the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

NATO stands ready to continue to support the United States as it recovers from this natural disaster.
