FEMA Disaster Planning

By Remy Benoit

From Scott Lindlaw, the AP, at Truthout FEMA Shifts, Draws Own Disaster Plans.

As there is a 143-mile dike around Lake Okeechobee why not begin fixing it, rather than just plan for disaster failure? I know, things move slowly, but guess what? Water moves fast - very, very fast.

Just ask anyone down here! From Levee at Lake Okeechobee has eroded, experts say
Herbert Hoover Dike has 50-50 chance of failing within 4 years, engineers' report.

Look around where you live - holler now, rather than tread water later from your roof. This is real homeland security - keeping up with the infrastructure.

Do the letters CCC, WPA mean anything to you? Maybe we need new ones?
