Last week, Michael Brown, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, told CNN his agency had recently planned for a Category 5 hurricane hitting New Orleans.
Speaking to “Larry King Live” on Aug. 31, in the wake of Katrina, Brown said, “That Category 4 hurricane caused the same kind of damage that we anticipated. So we planned for it two years ago. Last year, we exercised it. And unfortunately this year, we're implementing it.”
Brown suggested FEMA — part of the Department of Homeland Security — was carrying out a prepared plan, rather than having to suddenly create a new one.
Wow. Just think if they hadn’t been prepared.
