This comes after a mid-November grant of more than $5 billion to help Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey. Both grants are pulled from a larger $7.4 billion block that is being divided between Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and California (following that state’s widespread wildfires). But how exactly will the money be distributed and used on the ground in Florida and Texas?In the case of Florida, the nearly $616 million will be distributed through Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. The grant is earmarked for housing, business losses, and damaged infrastructure, but it almost certainly won’t be enough to cover every need. Of Florida’s 67 counties, FEMA designated 48 of them for individual assistance. According to the Orlando Sentinel, “in Orange, Seminole, Orange and Osceola counties, more than 37,660 Irma-related insurance claims had been closed without payment—making them part of the 250,000 unpaid and closed claims statewide.”According to a HUD analysis, thousands of middle- and lower-income Florida homeowners and renters “experienced serious damage to their residences and were not adequately insured for flood damage.” The state is coordinating with various government officials to figure out exactly how that grant money will be disbursed. Tiffany Vause, director of communications for the state Department of Economic Opportunity, also said that they will likely seek additional federal funds beyond the $615 million.In Texas, it’s been three months since Hurricane Harvey hit the gulf coast. According to the Texas Tribune, Texas leaders are estimating they may need as much as $121 billion in federal money to tackle damages just to public buildings and infrastructure—a figure that makes that $7.4 billion grant look like a drop in the bucket. There’s no official estimate for what the damage tally is for private homes, but according to the Tribune, “more than 18,000 families were still living in FEMA-paid hotel rooms as of Nov. 13 and federal inspectors have visited more than 570,000 homes damaged by Harvey.”While that HUD grant is undoubtedly much needed, the Tribune reveals that none of that money has been handed over to the State of Texas yet. Given that it’s only been two weeks since the initial HUD announcement, that’s not too surprising, but HUD will reportedly be announcing spending parameters for the Texas grant sometime in December.Texas has received more immediate federal relief from FEMA, which has so far spent around $1.4 billion to assist Harvey victims with short-term needs, including $186 million toward hotel rooms for displaced residents. FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program has paid out even more, paying more than $5.7 billion in claims for Texan homeowners who were underinsured or not covered by private insurance.Even once those HUD millions are disbursed, it will be a long road to recovery for Florida and Texas homeowners trying to pick up the pieces after hurricane season.

Honeysuckle to return in Hatton’s Grace Hurdle | Racing News

first_img“Fairyhouse seems to have a lot of nice mares’ races there and they provide such good ground for their bigger days, so it’s great to be able to run them there. By coincidence as much as anything, she’s done a lot of racing there.”Honeysuckle and Benie Des Dieux fought out a memorable finish to the Mares’ Hurdle at Cheltenham in March and that race, along with the Champion Hurdle, will be on the radar again this season, if all goes to plan.De Bromhead said: “If she’s in the same form as she was last year, we would start in the Hatton’s Grace and probably aim for the Irish Champion Hurdle and then reassess everything after that.- Advertisement – Henry de Bromhead is preparing to take the wraps off stable star Honeysuckle, who will bid to defend her Baroneracing.com Hatton’s Grace Hurdle crown at Fairyhouse later this month.The six-year-old is unbeaten in eight starts for De Bromhead so far – counting this race, the Irish Champion Hurdle and the Close Brothers Mares’ Hurdle at Cheltenham on her tally last term.- Advertisement – “I imagine if everything has gone well, she will get an entry for the Champion Hurdle and the Mares’ Hurdle at Cheltenham and we’ll see nearer the time what we decide to do.”Honeysuckle was a point-to-point winner before joining De Bromhead and when asked if the mare could possibly embark on a chasing career in the future, he added: “I would say so.“She’s achieving so much over hurdles, but in fairness to her, some days she loose schools over a fence so she’s keeping her eye in with it and, touch wood, she seems very good with it. We’ll see, but that could happen.”The Hatton’s Grace is one of three Grade Ones at Fairyhouse’s Winter Festival, along with the Drinmore Novices’ Chase and the Royal Bond Novices’ Hurdle, all of which are backed by Bar One Racing.De Bromhead has two possibles for the later event, with Sunday’s Navan Grade Three runner-up Annexation in the mix along with Irascible, won made a winning debut for the yard at Clonmel last month.The trainer said: “Annexation ran really well (at Navan), he’s a lovely horse – he wears his heart on his sleeve. He was probably a bit keen there. They didn’t go much of a gallop, then Rachael (Blackmore) thought she was struggling, but then she thought she got there too soon.“He has loads of class, he’s won on quick ground, soft ground, he jumps, he won over a seven furlongs on the Flat – he’s just a lovely horse to have.“He’s entered and we also have Irascible, who won his maiden hurdle first time out for us the other day. They’re both entered and we’ll see nearer the time what we do.”The Winter Festival kicks off on November 28, and De Bromhead could be represented in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares’ Hurdle, a race that was initially due to be run as a Grade One at Fairyhouse’s Easter meeting before the Covid-19 shutdown.De Bromhead won the equivalent event with Honeysuckle in 2019 and Minella Melody, who returned with second place in a Galway Grade Three last month, is in line to challenge.He added: “It’s a little disappointing it’s not a Grade One. The mares of that generation, I’m not sure they got a crack at any Grade One throughout the year. The mares’ novice in Cheltenham is a Grade Two, so it’s a little bit disappointing, but I’m sure there’s a very good reason.“It’s fantastic they’ve salvaged it as a Grade Two though.“Minella Melody will have a go at that. She had a good year last year, (but) she was a bit disappointing in Cheltenham (18th in Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle). She’s quite a stuffy mare, so we said we would give her a run at Galway the other day and hopefully that will have her spot on for the race.” Those three Grade One triumphs took Honeysuckle’s top-level career victories to four and the daughter of Sulamani will be seeking a sixth Fairyhouse win when she contests the November 29 highlight.De Bromhead said: “She’s brilliant and we’re very lucky to have her. It was a great performance that day (last year). She seems in good form so hopefully she can have another good go at it this time.“The first day (she ran) she was good, but she’s just progressed and progressed. She’s not a mare that would take a huge amount of work, so you wouldn’t be working her a lot at home.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: The 2019 international summer proved to be unforgettable in the history of England cricket, with the team winning the ICC Cricket World Cup for the first time and drawing an Ashes contest against Australia after 47 years. One man played a key factor in England’s brilliant performance in the summer and that was Jofra Archer. The Barbados-born pacer took 20 wickets in the World Cup and 22 wickets in four games in the Ashes series to enhance his reputation as one of the best bowlers in the world. Due to his efforts, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has rewarded Archer with a central contract for the first time. Archer’s bowling touched speeds in the mid-90-miles-per-hour range in a scintillating debut international summer. The 24-year-old, who only became England qualified earlier this year, is one of 10 players to receive a Test deal for the 2019/20 season. Another is opener Rory Burns, who cemented his spot at the top of the order with some battling performances in the Ashes. Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid have lost their central Test contracts but are in a list of 12, also including Joe Denly, to be handed less lucrative white-ball deals.Also Read | Jofra Archer’s spell absolutely frightening: Ben StokesArcher bowled the all-important super over in the final against New Zealand and although the Kiwis tied the match, England were declared the World Cup champions as they had a superior boundary count.
