Asked what assistance we had sent the PMS said the UK was in close contact with colleagues in the United States on progress of the storm and its impact. We had deployed two consular officers from the US network to New York. New York Consul General now has four consular experts as well as other consular and crisis trained staff available. We had set up a number for British Nationals requiring emergency assistance and were advising British Nationals in the area to monitor reports on TV and radio and to follow the advice of local authorities.
