Pete Gaynor, acting FEMA Director, reported that doubts are currently being used to manage the storm.
Gaynor said, “I presume,” to host Chris Wallace during Fox News Sunday. Janice Dean, Fox News senior meteorologist, hit the key word — the doubt.
“We have been dealing together with doubt almost the entire time,” said Dorian. Tomorrow and Tuesday are likely to be the last days of this stall. Cat Five, 160 mile per hour spike winds. People are becoming tired from this storm, and it has also touched the East Coast of Florida.
Dorian reached Category 5 strength on Sunday as it joined the ranks of other high power storms that have exceeded 145 mph winds, such as Hurricane Dean in 2007 and Hurricane Katrina 2005. Forecasters expect Dorian to make landfall in South Carolina on Monday. Many counties in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida have already declared a state of emergency.
Gaynor said, “We need people to — don’t discount this storm.” We are not from it. End, water, and life-threatening explosions are coming. Make sure you take the time to prepare yourself and your loved ones.
Gaynor warns that there is still danger, even though Florida may be spared a direct hit.
He explained that storm surge was one of the things we are most concerned about. “You probably know that the majority of weather-related deaths in the 90 percent range from flooding, water, and spike. Half of those deaths are caused by people driving through floodwaters. This storm must be taken seriously.
Gaynor said that FEMA is prepared for the storm.
He said, “We have been involved in this for five to six days, preparing.” “We were activated at the federal response coordination center, which you can see. We have water, food, generators and employees. There are also helicopters and ambulances from Florida to North Carolina.
Additionally, the acting head noted that his agency had “lots of money and resources to deal with 2017 and 2018 crise recoveries and also add reaction in 2019 this year” — despite DHS’ decision last week to divert $155million in federal emergency aid to strengthen law enforcement.
Gaynor stated, “We live with risk every day.” “We evaluate risk. “We evaluate risk. We have determined that $155 million is low-risk and doesn’t affect our preparedness for Dorian.”
