Hurricane Laura further strains FEMA in disaster-filled year
The federal disaster agency has a major role in hurricane response, working with state and local authorities to prepare beforehand and clean-up and rebuild in the aftermath. I think even in a normal hurricane season, a traditional hurricane season, its complicated enough," Gaynor said on ABC's Good Morning America" on Thursday. FEMA, in a written response to questions about the fund, said the executive order includes a provision that ensures the disaster fund won't drop below $25 billion. FEMA has sufficient resources to handle the ongoing response to Hurricane Laura as well as delivering other assistance that has been authorized and directed by the president," Bibo told reporters. With a hurricane season that runs through Nov. 30 and fires still blazing in California, it may get worse.
