Trump's FEMA failing again Citizens without water and food for days from Hurricane Michael [View all]

"For his part, Governor Scott seems more distant and inattentive than with last year's Hurricane Irma. His answer, "everyone just needs to help each other, right now". Resources seem to be allocated for law enforcement and power, but little else. One might ask, where are those pre-positioned supplies FEMA bragged about. Is FEMA suffering from poor resources given to the agency? And rural areas away from the coast aren't seeing any assistance. From the daily beast article again:

Word about not getting water or meals had not yet reached rural communities inundated by the hurricane’s rains and storm surge. In Gadsden County, outside Tallahassee, where the storm killed four people, county commissioner Anthony Viegbesie said he had not seen a single relief agency.

“This is a community that lives on agriculture. Without electricity, the wells don’t work,” he said. “We survive primitively.” "
