With the government shutdown, if hurricane Karen hits NOLA (New Orleans), does that mean FEMA is also "shutdown"?
I suspect they will be made exempt. but they are shut down at the present time. However, there's no way that Obama will let a major disaster hit and not do anything. He'll be called Bush if he does that.
Doesn't matter either way ... FEMA is pretty much worthless to the average person.
yes.....FEMA is closed
FEMA won't keep people from dying or getting sick in an emergency. It's best to care for self as much as possible, whatever gov't can do.
They may be exempt
One can only wait and see!! ( and hope )!
FEMA has already started calling workers back to deal with Hurricane Karen.
