SANA'A, WASHINGTON, Nov. 01 (Saba) - President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi instructed on Thursday the Yemeni embassy in Washington to form an operation room to insure the safety of the Yemeni community in the USA east coast hit by the Sandy storm.
The President's directives came after the USA east coast was stricken last Monday by one of the strongest storms ever in the USA history, claiming the lives of over 50 people.
Hadi ordered the embassy to present all assistance and coordinate with the USA local authorities to help Yemenis may be affected by the storm.
The chargé d'affaires of the Yemeni embassy in Washington Adel al-Sunaini said all the Yemeni community's members in the USA, particularly those in the eastern coast states, were all fine and unharmed.
He stressed that the USA authorities have not notified the embassy of any Yemeni casualty due to the storm until the midday of Thursday.
The embassy has formed an operation room and emergency committee to deal with any report of casualties as soon as possible.
15 states at the USA east coast, topped by New York and New Jersey, were hit Monday by the super storm Sandy. It knocked millions of houses and enterprises out of power across the east coast, leaving streets flooded and houses burned.
