In response to the many comments on the last posting, the Diva would like to know
To what extent does FEMA assess the capabilities of all of the states and territories prior to a disaster? And how adequate are their assessments?
Generally, I am interested in the extent to which a problematic response can be anticipated. Specifically, I wonder if FEMA staff knew what the weaknesses were in Puerto Rico re Commonwealth and local emergency management capability before hurricane season started?
