What Will It Take?

A Mason-Dixon poll released earlier today revealed that a quarter of the people questioned along the East and Gulf coasts didn’t feel any fear of hurricanes, would take minimal steps to secure their homes and felt they could safely evacuate with 30 minutes to an hour’s notice.

Florida residents who are currently residing in some 15,000 mobile homes and travel trailers provided by FEMA across the state as emergency housing may have a different reaction to those questions.

    I work for FEMA and I can say without remorse that those people who did not learn from the disasters last year are job security for me this year. As for me and my family, we will be buying the plywood as soon as a storm is named.

    We’ve already gotten the plywood, have sealed any and all cracks around doors, windows, and in the “stucco” — and have all our supplies on hand. We’re not taking any chances. A half hour to an hour of notice in order to evacuate a hurricane [along with a gazillion other folks] is laughable. There’s no friggin’ way.
