Homeland security adviser Tom Bossert announced the “largest-ever mobilization of our military in a naval and marine operation” to provide relief after Hurricane Irma and said about 700,000 people had registered for aid after Harvey.

Asked about the price tag of the operation, Bossert said he didn’t want to guess. The governor of Texas announced he had disbursed $135m in federal aid on the same day as Donald Trump signed a $15.3bn aid bill.
