17 September 2017, 01:11 | Todd Saunders

The Governor has pledged to see how NY can provide assistance to jumpstart recovery in affected areas.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announces a new wave of funding to combat the opioid crisis across New York State.

New York's Air National Guard sent 130 airmen with three rescue helicopters, two search and rescue aircraft and three inflatable rescue boats to the islands last week.

The aftermath also threatens the Islands' economy.

He said 100 members of the New York Army National Guard and 30 members of the New York State Police will help with security in St. Thomas.

The Democrat visited the Virgin Islands Friday to survey storm damage to better understand how NY can assist in the recovery.

The thing is, as of yesterday, it was reporting that everything was OK, that they were using portable air conditioners and fans. Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez said about half of the county's traffic signals were out.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, said in a statement he wants to prevent people from "unwarranted targeting" while in the Empire State.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is headed to the U.S. Virgin Islands to assess damage from Hurricane Irma and see how his state can assist in the recovery. Additionally, Airmen from the 105th Airlift Wing deployed a satellite communication team with seven personnel to MS using a C-17 aircraft on Sunday, September 10 as part of the Hurricane Irma response and support for the Florida National Guard. Other units have traveled to Texas, Florida, Mississippi and Puerto Rico following hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Cuomo departed Friday morning for the Caribbean islands and plans return home in the evening.

The trip likely will fuel speculation about Cuomo's interest in running for president in 2020.

NY has already deployed Air National Guard aircraft and personnel to the islands to help with search and rescue. The assessment tour and recovery mission comes after Governor Mapp requested that Governor Cuomo travel to the region to survey the damage. Mapp is a Brooklyn native and was a New York City police officer.
