Sandy volunteer: It's worse than Katrina




WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (WWLP) - Sandy relief efforts continue in the Tri State area, where thousands are still without power and many more are homeless.

Where have all the news reports gone about the remaining problems and lack of F.E.M.A. response to this Major catastrophic happening?




“This is probably my 15th deployment,” Bill Pruyne of East Longmeadow said. “I started with Katrina and that was quite an experience to start with, and I think this is worse than Katrina. It's much more land mass involved, and many more people involved, and the Red Cross is going to be out here for quite a while helping these people."

And where has this great president been since he won the election? Maybe I missed it....no votes to worry about anymore...just damage control?

November 16, 2012 Obama seeks to avoid Katrina comparison with Sandy response By Jeff Bliss and Mike Dorning The Washington Post

NEW YORK — President Barack Obama on Thursday promised residents of New York and New Jersey hit by superstorm Sandy that they will get a coordinated federal, state and local effort to rebuild their devastated neighborhoods.


Sure seems like similarities with Katrina exist in the Federal handling of this.

I'm sure there is no need for concern. As I recall, CNN reported before the election that the President was aware of the situation and had a handle on it. Surely all the people affected by Sandy are getting all the support that the federal government can muster.

I can't help but wonder, though, if FEMA is distributing any of the 450 million bullets that they bought earlier this year? Not sure how that would help in this situation, but they must have had a reason for buying them. And what reason could there be except to hand them out to people that lost their bullets due to tragedies like this. They probably should have bought things like food and bottled water instead.

FEMA didn't work very well until after Andrew, then they got their stuff somewhat together. They were staffed and run by emergency response professionals.
Then GWB had the brilliant idea to put FEMA under the Homeland Security and replaced the management with people as political favors, people who knew nothing about emergency response like "heckuva job Brownie" who was a professional horse breeder.

Exactly why Katrina was such a needless disaster above and beyond the destruction done by the storm. Looks like little has changed.
How about some EXECUTIVE ORDERS to straighten this @#$@ out Mr. Obama - or would that interrupt your golfing?

Nor'easters are quite common in that area and hurricanes have hit there before. This was completely foreseeable. I have been without grid power for three weeks and longer. That is why I have a generator and a small window unit AC. That is why I keep extra fuel and fuel stabilizer. That is why I have solar panels and a battery bank to run a few convenience items from time to time. That is why I have a crank radio and crank flashlights. Prior planning prevents piss poor performance.



I have, I did, I keep. Wake up call .Everyone does not have the luxury you have. What about the sick and senior citizens. What about those who live in apartments and may have had food and water but no electricity in the cold? What about those who work and their jobs would not let them off to prepare? Your lack of compassion and lack of reasoning to evaluate other factors that could have prevented someone from suffering speaks volumes.
