For a storm that ravaged over 900 square miles of territory, I think the response was about a good as anyone could reasonably expect. After all, the responders are only human. There are no Super Heroes to come dashing to the rescue.



Grady the actual area involed was 90,000 square miles not 900. Was that perhaps a typo?


Federal disaster declarations are covering 90,000 square miles of affected areas.

The main thing that I want to say about this subject is that had there been more help initially in helping these people evacuate perhaps the word forced would never have been necessary somebody please tell me with all the technology and resources we truly have why did we not physically get those people out before this went down? it's not like they did not know it was coming? and while I am grateful 100% for all the help that I see my fellow humans offering now why did we wait untill after?
