    We saw this stupidity in 2005, where New Orleans government and their stupid constituents either sat there and did nothing or competely bungled efforts that should have been taken to minimize catastrophe.

    OK, liberals. How about a show of hands. How many of you think sitting around waiting for incompetent big government liberals to save you is the thing to do when you live at or below sea level and a hurricane is approaching?

    Life is all about priorities, people.

    i guess you have forgotten about all the white folks who did the same thing in new orleans, who have waited it out in texas, in north carolina, in florida believing they could ride it out. good god, do you even try to rein in your senseless bigotry? there was plenty of blame to go around at New Orleans, beginning with bush's choice for FEMA at the time, Brownie, who was chosen for the job because he was a big time GOP contributor and A HORSE SHOW JUDGE. google how disastrously he handled that huge catastrophe and then post some more pics of poor black folks caught up in it as if it was their fault....a lot of them had no transportation, fool. and were elderly. act like a human being.

    Odd... I never mentioned skin color. If you have a photo of a white person being an evil moron in the aftermath of Katrina, please post it. I'm happy to add any facts to the debate.

    I guess having a TV executive for a mayor, who was later convicted of corruption had nothing to do with the preparedness of "Chocolate City". It's all Bush's fault Dammit!

    Oh and by the way... If the dude in the picture isn't at fault for stealing, who is? "Caught up"...."? NO. That is simply profiteering off a natural disaster.

    Are you also dumb enough to not leave when a Cat 4 is headed towards you?

    hate to bust all the white cracker trump voter snot bubbles, but once a federal disaster is claimed, the local folks have no more control, or the state, it is on FEMA to call the shots, to direct the action, to determine any forced evacuations. and that fell upon Brownie, former horse show judge. i know you would rather blame a black guy, or a democrat, and never some rich former horse show judge that should never have been given such an important job, but then again, you are bigoted trump voters, it is what we expect from you.

    Louisiana declares state of emergency as storm develops into ...

    https://www.theguardian.com/us.../mississippi-river-levees-new-orleans-rain-flooding
    Louisiana declares state of emergency as storm develops into hurricane. Louisiana on Wednesday declared a state of emergency as a storm in the Gulf of Mexico was fast developing into a category 1 hurricane and spinning towards the Louisiana coast.


    The planning
    Before Hurricane Katrina struck, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) was confident that it was ready. Its director, Michael Brown, said: "Fema has pre-positioned many assets including ice, water, food and rescue teams to move into the stricken areas as soon as it is safe to do so."

    Mr Brown even told the Associated Press news agency that the evacuation had gone well. "I was impressed with the evacuation, once it was ordered it was very smooth," he said.
    Yet on Saturday 28 August, the day before the evacuation was ordered, Mr Brown did not say that people should leave the city. All he said was:

    "There's still time to take action now, but you must be prepared and take shelter and other emergency precautions immediately."

    This has made Fema appear complacent in the period immediately before the hurricane arrived. If it did not expect the worst, it would not have prepared for the worst.

    The Brown statement went out on the same day that the National Hurricane Center was warning that Katrina was strengthening to the top Category Five. (In fact I have double checked this and find that on the Saturday evening the forecast was for a strengthening to Category Four. It went up to Five on Sunday. But the point remains -- the danger was there. The difference between a Four and a Five is the difference between being hit by a truck and a train.) A Fema exercise last year called "Hurricane Pam" had looked at a Category Three, and that was bad enough.

    The relief operation

    The scenes which most shocked the world were at the Superdome and the Convention Center. Yet it turns out that neither Mr Brown nor his boss, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, knew about the crisis at the Center until Thursday. And they should have known about the Superdome all along as it was the designated shelter.
    This, despite numerous television reports from the scene. It was not until Friday that the first relief convoy arrived.

    "It was midday Tuesday that I became aware of the fact that there was no possibility of plugging the gap, and that essentially the lake was going to drain into the city," Michael Chertoff, Homeland Security Secretary said.

    "The very day that this emerged in the press, I was on a video conference with all the officials, including state and local officials. And nobody, none of the state and local officials or anybody else, was talking about a Convention Center," Chertoff told CNN. Note how he blames local officials when by law, once the state asks for federal emergency disaster relief, FEMA/Homeland Security have full authority.

    Nor did he know about the significance of the breach in the floodwalls until a day later.
    "It was midday Tuesday that I became aware of the fact that there was no possibility of plugging the gap, and that essentially the lake was going to drain into the city," he said on NBC.

    But ironically the failure at the Convention Center would have been fairly easy to put right. Reporters drove there without problems. One took a taxi.

    instead of running your mouth, how about proving it wrong? are you saying during a state of emergency, FEMA is not in charge by law? put or shut up.

    This page provides procedural information regarding the Stafford Act declaration process and is intended for emergency managers, elected officials, media, and stakeholders interested in the formal declaration process. All emergency and major disaster declarations are made solely at the discretion of the President of the United States.

    The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 5121-5207 (the Stafford Act) §401 states in part that: "All requests for a declaration by the President that a major disaster exists shall be made by the Governor of the affected State." A State also includes the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The Republic of Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia are also eligible to request a declaration and receive assistance through the Compacts of Free Association.


    §206.42 Responsibilities of coordinating officers.
    (a) Following a declaration of a major disaster or an emergency, the FCO shall:

    (1) Make an initial appraisal of the types of assistance most urgently needed;

    (2) In coordination with the SCO, establish field offices and Disaster Application Centers as necessary to coordinate and monitor assistance programs, disseminate information, accept applications, and counsel individuals, families and businesses concerning available assistance;

    (3) Coordinate the administration of relief, including activities of State and local governments, activities of Federal agencies, and those of the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, the Mennonite Disaster Service, and other voluntary relief organizations which agree to operate under the FCO's advice and direction;

    (4) Undertake appropriate action to make certain that all of the Federal agencies are carrying out their appropriate disaster assistance roles under their own legislative authorities and operational policies; and

    (5) Take other action, consistent with the provisions of the Stafford Act, as necessary to assist citizens and public officials in promptly obtaining assistance to which they are entitled.

    (b) The SCO coordinates State and local disaster assistance efforts with those of the Federal Government working closely with the FCO. The SCO is the principal point of contact regarding coordination of State and local disaster relief activities, and implementation of the State emergency plan. The functions, responsibilities, and authorities of the SCO are set forth in the State emergency plan. It is the responsibility of the SCO to ensure that all affected local jurisdictions are informed of the declaration, the types of assistance authorized, and the areas eligible to receive such assistance.
