3. Where is FEMA?

What gets me is that we haven't heard a single word from FEMA. I just went to NC news sites and they have the governor saying state resources are being deployed ahead of the storm, a lot of emergency talk, but he never mentioned fema. Neither is anyone else.

[quote]Gov. Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency on Friday. In a news release on Sunday, he warned people to “take steps now” to be ready when the storm arrives.

“Everyone in North Carolina needs to keep a close eye on Florence and take steps now to get ready for impacts later this week,” Cooper said in the release. “State emergency management, transportation, health experts and others are making sure North Carolina is prepared for the storm, and I urge the public to review your emergency plans and gather your supplies now.”

...

n addition to the state of emergency, Cooper “temporarily waived certain restrictions for trucks and heavy vehicles to help farmers harvest and move crops and livestock ahead of the storm and help utilities and other equipment be ready to respond if needed,” according to the release.

N.C. Emergency Management was working to plan deployment of resources across the state ahead of the storm.[/quote]

Granted, these are state news outlets, but really, fema must be on sabatical for a gop state gov to not mention coordination with a gop run agency.
