    Just want to mention that a lot of other organizations, such as the American Red Cross, Team Rubicon, and many philanthropic organizations would be involved also.

    Always beneficial to get a good start with storm efforts. Building trust with those impacted by the disaster helps with recovery work. Been impressed with FEMA Administrator Brock Long. Saying all the right things and seems to have a firm understanding of the tremendous scope of this disaster.

    Still concerned with the long run and in particular the reservists program. Without sufficient numbers of well trained and experienced FEMA personnel on the ground, recovery will be a struggle.

    Regardless, for now, it appears that with a new sheriff in town things are going in the right direction.
