    Has Barack Obama gone down there yet? No? People died and Obama snoozed. Truly unforgivable. Where's FEMA, in a meaningful way? No excuses. The horror.

    Are you serious? It was an ice storm.

    Did Bush come to NY after our 2006 blizzard?

    Are you people trying to find everything imaginable to criticize him on? He's not even in office two weeks.

    If his stimulus bills don't work, then criticize him. If a hurricane hits, then criticize him. An ice storm? Are you serious? What's he going to survey? The ice? And if he goes there, all of the police and military people who are helping Kentucky right now would have to be diverted to Obama to help him.

    The reason why Katrina was such a cluster fuck was because of FEMA and the people running FEMA. Bush had been president for 4 years already. Obama will probably destroy FEMA and start a completely new emergency managment team for the gov't.

    Seems the only way he'll realize that so many have died in a 'national disaster.'

    It was an ice storm that has affected as many people as katrina!!! So where exactly has he been on the subject of 600,000 people in KY alone without power, water, or food. gee does that sound familiar. I guess if its your second week on the job you get a pass or something. I thought he had this VAST amount of organizational experience, what the hell happend to all of that...

    Bush was villified in the media for not going to NO. So why the double standard...

    ATLANTA -- Kentucky’s storm emergency needs continue to be a priority for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which is coordinating and delivering federal resources to the commonwealth.

    With widespread power outages affecting communications capabilities in Kentucky, FEMA’s Mobile Emergency Response Support units – called MERS – have moved from Thomasville, Ga. and Frederick, Md. to Kentucky.

    MERS assets include portable radio towers, repeaters and radios; multiple portable KU Band satellite systems and satellite telephones to help officials in areas where cellular towers are inoperative.

    FEMA also has deployed its Incident Response Vehicle, technicians, and radio/repeater equipment to construct a radio network capable of providing communications.

    “This is an amazing effort and we have worked long hours to move supplies and equipment. Our working partnership with FEMA ensures we are getting excellent help under difficult circumstances for Kentuckians suffering from the winter storm,” said Gen. John W. Heltzel, director of Kentucky’s Division of Emergency Management.

    FEMA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are working together to provide industrial-size generators needed to power critical facilities. Teams are assessing needs and installing these generators each day.

    FEMA also is fulfilling the commonwealth’s requests for diesel fuel and unleaded gasoline. Delivery of a total 80,000 gallons began Saturday at commonwealth staging areas in Greenville and Paducah.
