Tom Bossert, the Homeland Security Adviser for President Donald Trump said the federal government is currently focused on flooding, housing, debris and power restoration as Irma continues moving north.
During the White House press briefing, Bossert added that scientists were "dead on" when predicting that this would be a harsh hurricane season. However, he said it was too early to say whether this year's storms were a result of climate change.
"We'll have to do a trend analysis at a later date," Bossert said.
He added that the Trump administration doesn't want to do use federal funding to rebuild structures in areas that could be threatened by sea level rise in the future.
Bossert said in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will buy mobile homes from the open market to provide a "safe place" for victims to live.
