#1 Several Survivors of Deadly Alabama Tornadoes Deemed Ineligible for Federal Grants06-13-2011, 01:03 AM
FEMA dicks people in Alabama over.
As residents of states affected by severe weather and tornadoes this spring continue the difficult task of recovery, at least a few whose homes were nearly destroyed have been deemed ineligible for federal grants due to "insufficient damage," The Birmingham News reported Sunday.
The newspaper talked to one family who received the startling assessment from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) after their Pleasant Grove, Ala., home was reduced to "nothing but bricks and debris scattered over a concrete slab" during a deadly April tornado, the paper said.
"Based on your FEMA inspection, we have determined that the disaster has not caused your home to be unsafe to live in," the letter from FEMA rejecting Jonathan Stewart's grant application said.
Lashunta Tabb received the same letter, the newspaper reported, although her house in North Smithfield Manor, Ala., lost more than half of its roof and sustained other damage in the tornado.
According to The Birmingham News, FEMA said "insufficient damage" is the top reason in Alabama that people are initially classified as ineligible for grants.

Living in Missouri for many years, and seen the impact of tornadoes, I'm aware of the fraud propagated on insurance companies to get that roof reshingled when it didn't really need it. Having said that, this administration knows it can't win Alabama in '12, so it's payback time.
Hey, how about the Texas fires? And it's grey sky time here in SW Missouri from the Arizona fires started by illegal imigrant camp fires.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
