Romney ducks questions on FEMA funding
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was accosted by reporters earlier today for not answering their questions about his previous support for dismantling FEMA.
Don’t be fooled, don’t look out the window and think it doesn’t look so bad… The worst is still coming. Irene levels are currently being seen in the region right now. These forecasts for this surge are really extraordinary. They are talking about surges we’ve never seen before.
Hurricane Sandy is looking more and more like the Atlantic seaboard’s Katrina. The risk to life and property is very grave.
Flooding is already bad in places like Atlantic City, and reports are coming in that a crane is collapsing in New York City.
Things are bound to get much, much worse before the storm makes landfall.
This storm makes last year’s tempest - Hurricane Irene - seem tame by comparison.

CNN has perplexedly announced it won’t call the big weather event that is on the verge of disrupting the East Coast “Frankenstorm”. But as ThinkProgress’ Joe Romm says, it is a good metaphor for a storm that may owe some of its strength to a warming world.
