Albany, NY - October 8, 2016 - "The devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, and throughout the rest of the Caribbean, is nothing short of tragic. I ask all New Yorkers to join me in offering our thoughts and prayers to all its victims and the millions of people impacted. It is in these times that the world must come together and help its fellow citizens. New York stands ready to do just that.

"As part of our efforts, we will be establishing donation sites in communities across the state to encourage New Yorkers to contribute supplies, money and other resources to the recovery efforts in Haiti. We have also created a website to connect New Yorkers with leading international organizations helping with the recovery efforts. The state is coordinating with the federal government and relief organizations to ensure that both state resources and the generosity of New Yorkers quickly reaches those who need it the most.

"Additionally, New York is contributing to the recovery efforts here in the United States. Chief Master Sergeant Brian Mosher of the 106th RQW at Gabreski Air National Guard Base in Westhampton has been tapped to be the senior enlisted advisor for the Joint Task Force dispatched for Hurricane Matthew disaster relief response. Chief Mosher was selected for his search and rescue experience and will report directly to the JTF Commander. Chief Mosher's deployment follows my dispatching a team of New York's emergency management experts to Southern state Emergency Operations Centers.

"Whether in the United States or in the Caribbean, New York is doing all we can to help those impacted by the storm and we will continue those aggressive efforts in the coming days and weeks."
