The forecast for this afternoon in North Texas again includes heavy storms, hail and the possibility of dangerous tornadoes. So, how should you prepare?
Disaster help may be available for some losses not covered by insurance in the Central Texas town of West, still recovering from a fertilizer plant explosion last month.
President Obama has approved expanded disaster relief for those impacted by the plant explosion in West. The help includes grants for temporary housing and home repairs.
At the Czech Stop Bakery in West, a white bucket on the counter is as hot as the kolaches coming out of the oven.
When you think about severe weather in North Texas, flash floods and tornadoes come to mind. But the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) wants to make sure everyone knows what to do in the event of a major earthquake.
Governor Christie went out of his way to praise the work that the President and his administration are doing, something that he got a lot of credit for…outside of the right-wing blogosphere.
One week before a close election, superstorm Sandy has confounded the presidential race, halted early voting in many areas and led some to ponder whether the election might even be postponed.
When the storm and its headlines have passed, however, the questions about the Benghazi tragedy should continue full force as November 6 continues to near. During the much-needed questioning and impending investigation, it would be grand if President Obama would remain presidential throughout the process.
Romney was asked at a presidential debate whether FEMA should be shut down in light of the deficit. Romney replied that FEMA should “absolutely” be shut down. He was asked specifically if that included disaster relief. He replied that it was “immoral” to provide such relief in the face of “larger debts”, emphasizing that “it makes no sense at all” to have such programs.
The 2012 presidential campaign between President Obama and Mitt Romney will be book-ended by hurricanes.
As Hurricane Isaac threatens the Gulf again, we will see if Katrina and Isaac serve as bookends of GOP hostility to federal disaster relief. An odd stance for a party that claims to “choose life” while watching people die in natural disasters rather than provide an adequate response.
It may be an eight-hour drive to the Gulf Coast, but North Texas will once again play a key role if Isaac goes from bad to worse.
