No Food No Water No FEMA

Just Like Puerto Rico

 

There is so much rubble that the official death toll of 14 is expected to rise as search-and-rescue teams inspect thousands of buildings, looking for the the missing. On Friday, a team from the Miami Fire Department found a body in a Mexico Beach home.

 

Since the storm, there’s been no electricity and no water in Panama City. Emergency disaster relief was yet to be seen in strength as of Saturday morning and residents are growing more frustrated and desperate by the day.

 

The flood of debris has rendered most roads and streets virtually impassible for evacuees and first responders. Electric poles bent at 90 degrees and power lines strewn like spaghetti cover most lanes. Nearly all transformers were destroyed. Vehicles dodge trees that look like they were split like toothpicks or pulled up from the ground as if by giants.

 

“We’re in need of food, water, anything, we’re not getting any help. The whole street needs help,” Goolspy told the Red Cross. “FEMA referred me to you. That person told me to call 211.”

 

The EOC (Emergency Operation Center) denied The Daily Beast’s request to speak with the EOC chief, Mark Bowen, and city officials. Spokesperson Catie Feenie said the focus was on “coordinating some patrols who are in life-saving mode” for the 60,000 residents that had not evacuated before the hurricane, like Goolspy and Sanders.

 

“We’re telling everybody to save [food and water] because it will be days before we’re ready to do that,” Feenie said.

 

And word about not getting water or meals had not gotten to rural communities that were 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.”

 

Down the street, Barbara Sanders stood outside her daughter’s unit where she had come to stay during the hurricane.

 

“We’re not getting any help,” she said. “We need food. It’s just crazy.”

Florida's Bay County, Mexico Beach unsafe to return and 'it’s going to be a long time,' FEMA officials say

 

PANAMA CITY, Fla. – Federal officials helping Florida and other states dig out from the vast damage of Hurricane Michael said Friday it remains too dangerous to return to areas flooded by storm surge such as in Bay County.

 

Emergency teams are focused on restoring communications and transportation.

 

But Brock Long, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said debris and storm devastation in some areas prevents a safe return yet.

 

“It’s still not safe to return, particularly to Bay County, Florida,” Long said. “There is no infrastructure there to support you and quite honestly it’s a dangerous area to go back into.”

 

About 4,000 had applied to FEMA by Friday morning for financial assistance to repair their homes, said Alex Amparo, deputy assistant administrator for national preparedness.

 

But that number was expected to grow as transportation and communications networks were restored, he said.

 

“We expect that number to continue to increase exponentially as more people have access to communications,” Amparo said.

 

About 2,900 people stayed in Red Cross evacuation centers and emergency shelters in Florida, Georgia and Alabama, according to spokesman Peter Macias.

 

About 1,000 volunteers are helping provide shelter, food and health services in five states, he said.

Just like Puerto Rico, does fema have any clue as to what a helicopter looks like and it’s performance dynamics are???...and benefits of use?

And why didn’t they have a fleet of them with supplies lined up and ready to go?

Clear roads, but fly the darn choppers in!

And yes Mick, no surprise at all of the fema positions still vacant. 

With trump, the best that we can hope for is that he stocked up on paper products to throw...really feel for the real victims of the hurricane.

TRUMP HELD 4 POLITICAL RALLYS THIS WEEK

 

TRUMP EXPLOITED A VERY SICK PERSON WITH BI-POLAR DISEASE IN THE OVAL OFFICE THIS WEEK

 

TRUMP DID NOT MAKE SURE FEMA WAS FULLY STAFFED OR ADEQUATELY FUNDED

 

TRUMP DID NOT MAKE SURE THE US MILITARY WAS ON STANDBY TO ASSIST

 

(CNN)Hurricane Michael's death toll climbed to 18 Saturday, after another victim was discovered in Virginia.

 
Fears were mounting for those who did not heed evacuation orders before Hurricane Michael bulldozed large swaths of Florida's Panhandle, and residents in the hardest-hit areas grew increasingly desperate for provisions.
 
Three days after the monster storm, with rescue workers cutting through hulking debris piles in search of survivors, residents formed long lines outside fire stations, schools and Salvation Army food trucks to collect bottled water and ready-to-eat meals (MREs).
 
"It's about to get stupid if people don't get food and water," Panama City Assistant Fire Chief Gary Swearingen said Saturday.
 
 Some have already resorted to looting, according to CNN affiliate WEAR-TV, because of the lack of resources such as water, electricity and food.
 
"We're not able to gain access to all areas at this point in time," he said. "The quick response teams ... from around the state and nation have done a quick, rapid search of the area, have tried to clear homes the best they can."
 
In Panama City, the fire department has received more than 200 calls for checks on residents, but there are no resources to perform them, Fire Chief Alex Baird said. Completing the checks could take days or weeks.

Trump sure wasn't hesitant or afraid to direct the FBI as to how to conduct an investigation into Kavanaugh.  Yet he is saying nothing to FEMA about quickly airlifting food, water, and providing help on the ground to those in Florida and others damaged by the hurricane.  Why is that?  Too busy with rallies?

And this is The Leader of the Free World,  our Commander in Chief, The Big Lebowski.  So after more than  a week's warning and while the "biggest wettest storm in terms of water" hits our country, Trump is partying with his supporters and  a mental patient all the while people are dying and property and land are being destroyed. 

 

Now, I know some of you may say there was nothing he could do on the ground in Florida and that may be true.  But the fact is he had more than enough time to have EVERYTHING they may have needed in place and at the ready "after" the storm hit.  There should have been enough manpower (troops/national guard), equipment, food, and water, etc.  But instead Mr. Man was having fun with the lucky ones who "didn't get captured" by the storm.  You know how he likes those who don't get captured!

Thank goodness all the states are sticking together during this time of natural disaster. States are mobilizing whatever they have to help their fellow sister States. Churches nonprofit groups Girl Scouts Boy Scouts a collecting supplies and send him down to the victims affected by Hurricane Michael. We may not have a leader but we all stand tall as Americans

Spokesperson Catie Feenie said the focus was on “coordinating some patrols who are in life-saving mode” for the 60,000 residents that had not evacuated before the hurricane, like Goolspy and Sanders.

 

“We’re telling everybody to save [food and water] because it will be days before we’re ready to do that,” Feenie said.

 

And word about not getting water or meals had not gotten to rural communities that were 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.”

 

Down the street, Barbara Sanders stood outside her daughter’s unit where she had come to stay during the hurricane.

 

“We’re not getting any help,” she said. “We need food. It’s just crazy.”

"They can do their jobs"?  Really? Can you give examples of that?  Where are the helicopters doing airdrops of food and water?  Where are all of the 'bodies' from FEMA at?  Where is the national Guard?  Where is the on the ground help? Oh, I forgot, trump was too busy with rallies to have  any plans in place for dealing with this.  He couldn't even keep FEMA staffed, or many other branches of government for that matter.

Do you really think you need an Acting Deputy Assistant Administrator for Policy, Program Analysis, and International Affairs in order to make the helicopters fly. You are just supporting the pettiness of this thread.

Well Maybe You Could Explain Why on Monday October 15th - No One From FEMA or the State of Florida had been to this home in Panama City Florida

 

No One at the Farm has been able to communicate or get out of the area since the Storm hit land in Florda on October 10th

 

They finally had to Spell Out Help with Giant Logs and a Relative noticed the message on NOAA Satellite Imagery

 

The satellite imagery that Hand and Gee utilized to help their loved ones can be found on a website from NOAA.
 
The photos are taken by planes, equipped with cameras, that take images from less than a mile above the devastation. The resulting images are used to observe which areas are the hardest hit, and also helps authorities determine where help needs to go.
 
"The primary purpose of this imagery is to support emergency response efforts," NOAA spokeswoman Keeley Belva told CNN previously. "Having it available more broadly allows people to check on their property from afar and stay out of harm's way."
 
The images are very clear, which allows people to not only see if their house is still there, but if it's received roof damage.
 
They are updated daily, about every 12 hours, and can be viewed here. (Zoom in to your city and neighborhood.)

There is so much rubble that the official death toll of 14 is expected to rise as search-and-rescue teams inspect thousands of buildings, looking for the the missing. On Friday, a team from the Miami Fire Department found a body in a Mexico Beach home.

 

Since the storm, there’s been no electricity and no water in Panama City. Emergency disaster relief was yet to be seen in strength as of Saturday morning and residents are growing more frustrated and desperate by the day.

 

The flood of debris has rendered most roads and streets virtually impassible for evacuees and first responders. Electric poles bent at 90 degrees and power lines strewn like spaghetti cover most lanes. Nearly all transformers were destroyed. Vehicles dodge trees that look like they were split like toothpicks or pulled up from the ground as if by giants.

This is FEMA Region III - At Least 5 People Died in Region 3 From Hurricane Michael -  American Citizens are Still Suffering in Region 3 after Hurricane Michael

 

FEMA has No - Deputy Regional Administrator For Region III

FEMA - Also has NO Assistant Administrator, Risk Management - Do you think that might have contributed to the Grossly Inadequate Level of Preparedness for Hurricane Michael?

No person in this office or that office and yet the procedures are followed and the work gets done. Do you have details about the "Grossly Inadequate Level of Preparedness" (the caps help clarify)? I am particularly interested in what the people in PA were deprived of.

 

Remember, this was a fast one that went from a curiosity to a killer in a very short period of time.

That's how it has always been with trump the incompetent.

 

Now he will tell a pack of new lies in an attempt to divert from his administration's gross incompetence and the dishonesty of the people he appointed...

 

The nation now yearns for Dubya's marginally competent fema - it was easily more than ten times more functional than the trump travesty...
