The GOP has stated that States should be responsible for their own recovery and that the Feds should not be involved. I disagree. Ask the poor bastards in harms way if they want the Feds to butt off.
I hope all of you and yours are safe. I've been there and done that with 4 hurricanes. It's too late to offer advice. Being a lower level huiricane and being very urban you will not lose major landmarks. You will find your way out and back home. That is a very good thing. You will not become disoriented. That's a plus, as you will discover. If you can, leave people armed at home as you go out in search for necessities. There will be looters, especially in the hardest hit areas.
