NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The Federal Disaster Relief Fund, the pot of money used to help communities and individuals hit by disasters, is nearly depleted. That's bad news for victims of both Hurricane Irene and other disasters like the tornadoes that hit earlier this year.

UH-OH! I wonder if this could be the start of something? Where did all of FEMA's money go. Theres a small disaster and all of a sudden FEMA is broke? I think not.
It even states that if a real disaster append anytime soon, additional funds would be needed, throwing us even deeper in a debt hole. Let's hope nothing does happen, otherwise Marshall Law will probably be issued to get EVERYONE to evacuate this time. They can't afford to be spending money rescuing stragglers. Any thoughts?
