FAA issues new statement regarding use of drones in hurricane Harvey’s aftermath

This statement was issued by the FAA today:

 

“The FAA warns unauthorized drone operators that they may be subject to significant fines if they interfere with emergency response operations.

Flying a drone without authorization in or near the disaster area may violate federal, state, or local laws and ordinances,

even if a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) is not in place.

Allow first responders to save lives and property without interference.”
