Just over a year ago, FEMA and state agencies concluded a “successful” catastrophic hurricane exercise, Hurricane Pam. It was nearly prescient in predicting the Katrina scenario.What good did it do? When this is over, I’m genuinely curious about several questions:
- Were the plans created for and after “Pam” followed?
- Were the plans only workable on paper?
- Did the plans work but were inadequate to the reality of the situation?
- Were the plans not even followed, and if not, why?
