Fuck your Emergency I'm covering My Ass!
Although they are supposed to be disaster relief they can't seem to function in an actual disaster environment. They have closed relief centers instead of weathering the storm approaching with the residents that are still vulnerable and will be even more in need of assistance.
I look at what FEMA is doing and I think about all the things the Federal Government has done when it comes to focusing on a project and I just have to wonder why? We can push Rommel's tanks out of Africa but we can't provide emergency assistance to residents trying to rebuild from a catastrophic storm? We can build a canal across an isthmus but we can't provide shelter to Americans whose homes were stripped by the wind?

FEMA disaster recovery centers in Hurricane Sandy-ravaged sections of the city that were supposed to provide assistance to hurricane victims went MIA Wednesday morning, posting signs saying that they were closed due to the approaching Nor'easter.
The temporary shuttering of the facilities, which help victims register for disaster relief, as well as city food distribution centers come even as many of those still reeling from the monster storm were not told that they had to leave the battered areas.
On Tuesday, Mayor Bloomberg said that residents in the low-lying portions of Staten Island and the Rockaways were advised to leave ahead of the nor'easter, which could hit the city with 60 mph gusts and several inches of rain Wednesday afternoon, but that the evacuation was not mandatory like the one issued for all of Zone A ahead of Sandy.
The move left residents of the storm-ravaged areas fuming.
