Presidental Visit

Carrying over a conversation from the previous board, someone mentioned that the President should visit as soon as possible.

The security concerns for a visitation by the President is something that the impacted area certainly does not need right now. It will take resources away from the Search and Rescue efforts that are so important right now! Anywhere the President visits will require a full shut-down of the area that will require a tremendous number of police officers to handle. Additionally, you have to secure any area that he plans to visit, or even may visit hours before the appearence.

Nothing against the President, but IMHO, he should stay in Washington and let the authorities handle the situation. As a last resort, do a fly over with no stops in the impacted areas.
