FEMA ‘cold, callous’ to tornado victims
Kokomo badly needs three tornado shelters: one in the south end; one in the center of Kokomo, and one in the north end of Kokomo.
Let me point out more than a thousand people in the north end are living in mobile homes. If an EF-5 tornado hits the north end, maybe well over a hundred people would be killed.
Another point: The majority of people have no basement or tornado shelter to get to.
Priority two: Kokomo is in critical need of tornado sirens, which would for sure save lives. Small towns have these sirens. Why not Kokomo?
Now, turning attention to FEMA rejecting tornado relief aid to Kokomo and Howard County. Its denial was cold and callous, heartless and insensitive to all tornado victims of Kokomo.
Our country and government sends billions of dollars to foreign countries — and more to aid them when they have a natural disaster. This really upsets me when Kokomo can’t get any help whatsoever from FEMA. This is dumb and stupid of the chuckleheads who run FEMA.
I’m saying we should help the people in this country first before we help out other countries. We have an irresponsible government right now of out-of-touch, screwed up priorities for the American people. The hard-working citizens of Kokomo have paid millions and millions of dollars in state and federal taxes over the last five decades. This is a valid reason Kokomo should get disaster aid.
FEMA picks who gets aid. Seems like it only wants to help the rich people and social elite. Kokomo tornado victims almost all were poor people and middle class.
Seems like the FEMA people come from some other planet than the rest of us. I have a very bad opinion of FEMA.
