  • Evacuees who were sent to the various evacuation centers are mostly settled in with help from local NGOs, charity groups with support from local to national govt entities..finding temporary homes, schools, work, etc.

    Where i am in Ft.Hood/ Bell County...dinations have now rerouted to one staging and distribution center..it is expected to open for a few more weeks. Volunteer groups from businesses, NGOs, Chuches are coordinated through National groups like Red Cross, United Way, Etc. The real clean up is starting now that water has receeded.

    Ill have a better look when im down there starting on 9/9 for a week.

    Website, contact info for aid services were forwarded to individuals connected to FSMers impacted by the Hurricane.

    Lets hope Irma diverts from Florida..

  • Whats your point Rasta?
  • My point is he delivered what he said he would. Now the media is not giving him is dues. Lets not forget how he handled the hurricane crises one after another was superp. The media was all hoping he flops and when he stepped up and handled it they don't give him his dues. Not putting his names on stories on how good the government handled yet quick to put his name on negative stories.
