    From what I remember they were worried that they had no way to distribute the food and supplies. I don't see that as a great problem. If they start passing it out people who need it will find a way to get it. The biggest problem would be to stop them from crowding in all at once and pass it out in an equitable manner.
    But they didn't they warehoused it. Now it's wasted.

    Not much different than the 10,000 new rv trailers sitting at the airfield in Hope Arkanas, that we're never used including about half of them, the state of Louisiana turned down.
    Waste and fraud always show themselves at each disaster.
    No one cares.

    It does and it's a damned shame. When I hear of the Red Cross running something I know it will be screwed up.

    The irony of it all is that Puerto Rico, translated, means rich port.

    LA rather had their citizens displaced to other states or living in their moldy homes rather than accepting the FEMA trailers. They demanded FEMA provide complete modular homes, completely ignoring the fact that NoLa lots couldn't be cleared to set up those homes.
