Re: FEMA still not in Jackson County!


They aren't in Forrest County either. I have seen Ice and Water trucks (18 wheelers) but nothing else.
Our Local EOC Director told two FEMA reps to leave after giving their opinions and ideas, since they Could Not Help. He told them he didn't have Fuel for them to ride around and to get out of town. I believe that was Saturday.

Well good for him; that is so cool!

It's incredible. I can't even sleep thinking about the monstrous inequity of it.

I really think that the coastal counties are between a rock and a hard place. Where are they going to get the money to pay for the needed repairs if they (rightfully) tell FEMA to go jump in the gulf.

I am starting to get paranoid and thinking, Haliburton wants all the contracts, and told FEMA to stall until it could get all its manpower and equipment over there.

I wouldn't care if it didn't affect lives. People can't even bathe in the water because of the bad bacteria. How can you say to wait two weeks to start working on the overflowing sewer system and water treatment plants?

I wish Bill Gates or Donald Trump would step in and write a check directly to the counties.
