FEMA Ready?

Florida’s senior Senator, Bill Nelson, thinks FEMA– the agency that failed so badly after Katrina– is pretty much ready, if Ike hits Florida.  The Melbourne Democrat has high praise for FEMA Director David Paulison (former fire chief of Miami-Dade), saying Paulison’s cleaned out political deadwood that had accumulated in the agency.

The only big worry Nelson has– housing, if a Cat 4 or 5 hits south FL.  FEMA has 75,000 trailers at the ready, but they can’t use them because they have “formaldehyde problems”, unhealthy fumes in the interior.

Speaking to the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches, Nelson harkened back to the 1952 presidential campaign as he began his remarks– “I sure don’t like Ike.”
