Deficiencies at FL Div. of EM Prior to H. Irma

We have been hearing many accounts of the problems in Puerto Rico, but the deficiencies  noted by an audit of the FL State Div. of Emergency Management are a surprise. FL has been considered one of the better prepared states.

From the Miami Herald, this account of the FL Office of Emergency Management.
Audit warned Florida’s hurricane response system was ‘ill-prepared’ for disaster

The next question is does FEMA know what the capabilities of the state and territorial EM offices are?
