I was reading Donald Sensing's blog which pointed me to this at Instapundit. I'm not surprised. Working in the meteorology field, I've run into this through the years. In fact, one of the criticims of FEMA since 9/11 was that they have been so focused on terrorism, not that they shouldn't be, that they have ignored the natural disasters. This too I have seen that on the local level. The EMAs over the last 7+ years have regeared to homeland security, when more than likely, a natural disaster will "do in" a region. That is what my concern is. Of course, I know of a few EM's in the region that take the natural disaster seriously, and have found ways to balance out what they need.
