    Beware: After Katrina, FEMA dumped many looking for aid onto the SBA. A decade later, Obama's SBA/Treasury started putting the screws to those who received aid. I know, because the SBA took my home 11 years after Katrina. It was kicking victims when they were down. There has been no help without huge cost. You lose everything in a storm, make a deal with the government, and then lose everything again to the government if you make the list of people they think they can milk. They made public announcements claiming all aid was forgiven. It was a pre-election lie. They selected who could keep the aid and who had to pay it back, and that was NOT based on merit. If you had a job and owned a home, you got nailed.

    Best wishes and prayers to those wherever this storm hits.
    Make sure you all have a lot of cash on hand as this official stated. Cash, as we all know, can fix any problem or natural disaster.
    With enough cash, we can make this hurricane change course. AND, if our pockets are deep enough, we can make global warming go away for just a few dollars more.
    So, let us join hands and freak out about weather patterns that have existed for centuries, and ignore the facts. Just keep cash in your pockets at all times, and everything will be alright.
    Peace, folks.

  • Josh Potatoes

    Dear God, we ask that all Democrats be safe, and that the Trump supporters faced with burying their loved ones, after the hurricane, understand your punishment. Amen.

    Deputy Administrator for Resilience? 'Beauracrat-speak' for the guy who tells Americans to be more prudent. Salary: $180,000+ per annum.

  • Debbie Hines

    Yeah, I've dealt with FEMA before and they are worse then the hurricane. At first they send the nice people but as you know these things aren't done with in a few months time. But then they send in the enforcers and they are not very nice, trust me on that one. I had a FEMA representative talk to me like I was a criminal while I sat in front of my gutted out unliveable home.

  • Ricky Spanish

    The first thing FEMA does when controlling an area…
    Remove all firearms.
    Almost none of the firearms taken by FEMA during the last 5 major hurricanes have been returned.

  • The Dorchaidhe

    As mean as this might sound, I really hope it White's Florida off the face of the Earth. And then I hope it earthquake breaks the fault line in California. Those two states are nothing but crime-riddled shitholes

  • Matthew Galter

    Why doesn't FEMA just talk to the power plants and NEXRAD radar that is responsible 4 & controls all our weather, including manmade Doriene- SEE WEATHERWAR101 & PLANETLIGHTFORCE 4 DETAILED, DIRECT, RADAR EVIDENCE OF ALL THIS

  • CuriousFurious58

    next video from Fox News (comments disabled): 1 dead, at least 9 injured in Lyon knife attack = Knives of peace.

    "Hello….Allstate..theres a big old swirly hurricane coming down my street and this dooshbag with a receding hairline and weasel face and googly glasses told me buy hurricane insurance at the last minute. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU WON'T GIVE ME INSURANCE!"

  • Jay Edwards

    HAHAHAHA! Fox News disabled comments for their French knife attack video but it was open for comments before. What are you guys afraid of? Murdoch's sons are ruining your company…

  • KaCee Boxers

    Horrible interviewer. If the storm had not slowed down , Fl would be facing more impact. Guess interviewer expects others to have a crystal ball to determine everything a storm is going to do? Anyone who has lived through hurricanes know situations can change on a dime and to be prepared, regardless!

  • K C

    The risk comes when voting for a POTUS who authentically suggests dropping a Nuclear Weapon or Two on a hurricane to disrupt its path!!! That storm needs to curl its way up the coast and take out the White House!

  • tere201

    People should be financially prepared? That's what FEMA is for, to help those in need. Where does he thinks that money comes from?? Taxpayers!!!

    Does FEMA help out white residents or just minorities after a storm? I feel I like I was discriminated against in the last storm, while other protected groups received aid in the same area with less or no damage.

  • Granny of Many

    Funny you can comment on the weather post, but you can’t comment on the deep state killings and shootings, I guess they don’t want us telling their dummy crat followers that their leaders are killing their own people just to rail out at Trump. Hey …..when the people get tired of their family members dying they may come to their senses and start doing some research on their communist party.

  • Jacqueline Martensen

    We need to find out what happened to the missing people FEMA gave aid to in previous events. I for one would be running the other way. I think they were hauled off to the Wall Mart camps Obama set up. Run Baby run.

  • insAneTunA

    If you Fox idiots think that you can stop the people from commenting on your gun violence and child abuse related videos then you couldn't be more wrong. From now on all Disney related items or content will be banned from my household !!! Sick and tired of this crap !! That includes every network that is associated with Disney that I know of. I already banned Fox from my TV and here on youtube I block all advertisements.

  • I'm gone

    The last video before Fox disabled the comments.
    When you filter the news you report, and pick and choose according to what you want to portray, it no longer becomes news.
    It's propaganda.
    When you disable comments on your videos, you are denying us our right of freedom of speach.
    Even CNN allows comments, on everything.
    Fox needs to grow a pair.

  • Richard Strong

    Fox for the sake of other topics and their respective comment sections. Please allow comments on all videos dealing with current news. Just make folks use their real name to comment and strictly enforce no trolling.

  • insAneTunA

    This is a message for all the Fox and Disney advertisers. From now on you will not make any more money on me or my family. All the Disney related products and Disney related networks are banned from my household. I also blocked all advertisements on youtube. Enough is enough, and I hope that many more people will follow my example.

  • Nathan TruthFirst

    If you think cutting CO2 is expensive, watch if you count up all the costs and misery from hurricanes, heatwaves, floods, droughts, wildfires, etc. 99,9% of scientists are clear about it. More the 170 countries signed the Paris agreement. Hurricanes will be more often and more severe. If you think China is unfair. The rest of the world thinks America is unfair. America is and has been a big CO2 emitter.

  • SandCrabNews

    Be Prepared. Prepare while you have years to prepare. Do not rely on government. If you go to a shelter, you can't bring your guns.

  • Truth 888

    Being prepare in advance is good and accompanied by kneeling to God is better. God is able to turn any hurricane path way back to ocean or calm it down.

  • Faulty Lifesaprentice

    I'm certain Daniel's boss, the guy that is acting as if he was a legitimate head of FEMA and, by the way, the other guy that cares so much about American's security that not only diverted funds from FEMA but keeps it working with a lame duck as a head… both of them must be feeling really safe and certain. Certainly FEMA has all the means and will not falter. BECAUSE IF IT DOES… You people better try and hide behind THE WALL OF TRUMP.

  • Rae Anker

    Just goes to show if all the climate scientists and meteorological scientists and experts can't tell what a huge hurricane only a few hundred miles and a few days away is going to do ,how the hell do they expect us to believe that they can predict that global warming ,climate change ,sea levels ,bla bla bla is real ,when they can bet a million dollars each to precisely predict the weather for next Wednesday more than once I might start to take their propaganda more seriously.

  • Gus Gone

    Reports on French social media say that the Afghani illegal immigrant male knife attacker, shouted Allah Akbar while stabbing his indiscriminate victims. Despite this being reported to police. They are still claiming no terror intent.

  • L.L S.

    The politicians have turned Americans into lab rats waiting to be fed and cared for. Many have lost their ability to prepare and care for themselves. Dependence on government has become the norm. FEMA started out as a last result agency now the be all save all for those who donot prepare.

  • davmanx

    Trump meant the US government must help when Hurricane Dorian hits his Swamp base
    FEMA is short of Fund
    Trumptards must chip in donate your dollars to FEMA not just your silly remarks
    Some IDIOT siphoned it off for some F Wall somewhere

  • davmanx

    Those who are in the affected area take good care of your family and ride it through
    You guys don't harbor too much hope from your President
    Trump siphoned off FEMA's fund for emergencies like this
    Do you think Trump would cough it back
    He value his F Wall more than your lives

  • davmanx

    WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
