FEMA Says No to Ice For Hurricane Survivors

Hurricane survivors are being put at risk in Texas and other hot weather states because the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is no longer providing ice in relief situations, say watchdogs, relief workers and local leaders in Hurricane Alley.

"It's frustrating that the government can deliver $85 billion to bail out AIG, and they can't deliver ice in Texas," said Ben Smilowitz, executive director of the Disaster Accountability Project (DAP), a nonpartisan organization that monitors the nation's disaster response system.

In fact, while the federal government can deliver ice to disaster areas, it's chosen not to, under newly-revised FEMA rules. Instead, individual states and local governments are now tasked with purchasing, delivering and storing ice, even though they face tough logistical challenges in doing so, according to critics of the new policy.

yea, that really is disturbing.


if they're really going to continue demonstrating their lack of care for us, their citizens, why should we let them keep (mis)leading us further? Katrina was bad enough!!

did you hear about the "Texas Open Beaches Act"?

i'm not too familiar with FEMA's activities, but do you think the Texas OBA has any association with FEMA? maybe somewhere along the line?
