Two new reports out that provides reviews and analysis of two key actors re Hurricane Sandy:
(1) From FEMA: One Year Later: Examining the Ongoing Recovery from Hurricane Sandy Written testimony of FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate for a Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Subcommittee on Emergency Management, Intergovernmental Relations, and the District of Columbia hearing. ( 7 pages)
(2) At the same hearing, see also testimony of HUD Sec. Shaun Donovan plus other federal officials.
(3) From the Red Cross: Report is titled Superstorm Sandy; one-year update- October 2013.
- See also Jos Martin’s blog for the perspective of one long-time Red Cross volunteer: He voices his strong concerns about Red Cross efforts in Sandy and the recent investigations of them. See both Part 1 and Part 2:
While one cannot help but be impressed by the significant efforts and expenditures made by all three of the organizations above, I would like to see some independent analyses and efforts made to document the problems, issues, and needed changes to response and recovery mechanisms and operations by all of these key organization actors.
