    President Biden warned Wednesday that “hurricanes are coming” as he received a briefing ahead of the Atlantic storm season — just a day after he pulled a Federal Emergency Management Agency nominee who Republicans claimed was “pro-hurricane.” “We know hurricanes are coming our way. They grow more extreme every season thus far,” Biden said.

    As states across the Midwest and South pick up the pieces after a spate of tornadoes believed to have killed dozens of people, the top US emergency management official warned Sunday that such cataclysms will be the “new normal.” “The effects we are seeing of climate change are the crisis of our generation,” FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell told CNN’s “State of the Union.” Criswell added that while it was “not unusual” for tornadoes to strike in December, “at this magnitude, I don’t think we have ever seen one this late in the year.” “Even the severity and the amount of...

    AUSTIN, Texas — The Biden administration rejected Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s appeal that the federal government reimburse the state for millions of dollars spent responding to the border crisis. In a letter sent Sunday, Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Deanne Criswell denied the Republican governor’s request that it reconsider its denial to approve the state’s request for an emergency declaration. “After a thorough review of all the information contained in your initial request and appeal, we reaffirm our original findings that supplemental federal assistance under the Stafford Act is not warranted for this event. Therefore, I must inform you that...

    The New York Times ^ | 24 Sept 2021 | Christopher Flavelle
    Florida’s version of the American dream, which holds that even people of relatively modest means can aspire to live near the water, depends on a few crucial components: sugar white beaches, soft ocean breezes and federal flood insurance that is heavily subsidized. But starting Oct. 1, communities in Florida and elsewhere around the country will see those subsidies begin to disappear in a nationwide experiment in trying to adapt to climate change: Forcing Americans to pay something closer to the real cost of their flood risk, which is rising as the planet warms. While the program also covers homes around...

    I blame the mayor’: residents fume at de Blasio, AOC over flood Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave Mayor Bill de Blasio a pass for failing to warn New Yorkers about the fatal storm that lashed the city last week — preferring to pin the blame on climate change — but her Queens constituents slammed Hizzoner and other city officials for their lack of preparedness. “I don’t blame climate change, I blame the mayor,” Danette Rivera, 47, told The Post outside her Woodside home Monday morning after de Blasio, AOC, Sen. Charles Schumer and FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell toured her block.

    WASHINGTON — Federal Emergency Management Agency officials expect that they will soon be drawn deeper into the nationwide effort to resettle Afghan refugees, adding another complex challenge to a crushing shower of disasters that has cascaded down on the beleaguered agency over the last 18 months. The White House recently named Bob Fenton, the agency's former acting administrator and head of its Region 9 office, to lead the Homeland Security Department's resettlement task force.... ..."FEMA is stretched thin, relying on an overworked workforce," said a second agency official who spoke on condition of anonymity. "We were not designed to be...

Ron DeSantis of fumbling the state’s response to the recent building collapse in the town of Surfside. On Saturday, Dreier posted a screenshot of FEMA’s response to the recent building collapse, claiming that it took DeSantis a full 24 hours to approve any form of emergency assistance for the affected area. “There’s a saying in emergency management: The first 24 hours are the only 24 hours,” Dreier stated. “FEMA was ready to deploy to the condo collapse almost immediately, and included the crisis...

On Saturday, Dreier posted on her Twitter an account of FEMA’s response to the recent building collapse that occurred early Thursday morning in Surfside, Florida.

    Something is clearly wrong with Joe Biden. While speaking at a roundtable hurricane briefing from FEMA, Biden began by pushing talking points about how he "insists on nothing less than readiness" and that he plans to double the money the U.S. government will spend to help communities prepare for extreme weather events. When he attempted to give his thoughts at the FEMA meeting, that's when things got a little jumbled. “But, uh, there’s, you know, there’s to be, you know, beginning, uh, this effort for 2021 is, uh…” Biden stumbled. "I think we've learned a few lessons from last year,...

    The Biden Administration has directed FEMA to help shelter and transfer migrant children who are crossing unaccompanied into the United States at the border with Mexico. FEMA is the Federal EMERGENCY Management Agency. They provide governmental assistance in times of EMERGENCIES — at times when the normal assistance available for various government agencies is insufficient to deal with the EMERGENCY.Usually, that is a situation caused by an act of “Mother Nature.” But in the case of the Biden Administration, the EMERGENCY is caused entirely by the government — and it was entirely predictable.Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas said FEMA...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Saturday ordered an emergency agency that usually responds to floods, storms and other major disasters to help care for a growing number of migrant children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in news release that he would deploy the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) “to help receive, shelter and transport the children" over the next 90 days. The move signals the scope of a growing humanitarian and political crisis for the administration of President Joe Biden, a Democrat who took office on Jan. 20. The increased...
