Menendez Statement On Taiwan Typhoon

Washington - Typhoon Morakot has unleashed the worst flooding in Taiwan in 50 years, killing at least 70 and possibly hundreds more. U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), co-Chair of the Senate Taiwan Caucus, released the following statement in solidarity with the people of Taiwan:

"The tragic devastation we have seen in Taiwan is simply heart-breaking. The Taiwanese people should know that millions of Americans are filled with sympathy over their plight. As a nation, we stand ready to assist our fellow human beings who are suffering, should the Taiwanese government request help in the rescue and recovery efforts. My thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of this disastrous storm."
