State Representative Terri Leo Wilson Ready to Assist Constituents Post-Hurricane Beryl


Terri Leo-Wilson, State Representative, District 23

(Galveston, TX) – In the aftermath of Hurricane Beryl, the Office of State Representative Terri Leo Wilson stands ready to assist constituents during this challenging time. This afternoon, President Biden verbally granted Acting Governor Dan Patrick’s Emergency Declaration request through FEMA. This declaration covers Category A (Debris) and Category B (Emergency Protective Measures), providing crucial funding for emergency assistance to save lives, protect property, and support the restoration of community infrastructure impacted by the storm. 

Rep. Terri Leo Wilson attended a conference in Galveston today where Acting Governor Patrick reported on this critical update and provided insights into the state’s response to the disaster. FEMA’s assistance with these costs will expedite the recovery process and help ensure the safety of Texans affected by Hurricane Beryl. 

The Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) has activated its Catastrophe Incident Response (CAT) Plan to address the aftermath of Hurricane Beryl swiftly. This activation allows TWIA to scale up claim resources early and respond more quickly to policyholders with losses from the storm. As of Tuesday morning, TWIA has received more than 3,300 claims, with just under 500 claims filed through the Texas FAIR Plan Association (TFPA). 

Additionally, the Texas Legislature established the Ombudsman Program in 2011. The Texas Department of Insurance Coastal Outreach and Assistance Services Team (COAST) is available to assist policyholders with the TWIA claims process. For assistance, contact 855-352-6278. 

Rep. Wilson’s office is also closely coordinating with our energy providers (Entergy, Texas-New Mexico Power, and CenterPoint) as they work to restore power to homes. Updates will be continually posted on social media as more information becomes available. 

“Ensuring the safety and well-being of our community is my top priority,” said Rep. Terri Leo Wilson. “We are committed to providing the necessary support and resources to help our constituents recover and rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Beryl.”
