YOUR TURN: FEMA Disaster Aid


This week’s Your Turn segment goes to Sean Moran. Moran and others reacted to a story on our Facebook page where FEMA officials reminded people that disaster aid would be based on each person’s individual needs. The comment did not sit well with people who think their needs are not being met, including Moran. In his words:

If you have flood insurance FEMA denies you on everything. It does not matter if your insurance drags their feet and doesn’t pay you a penny for four weeks. It does not matter if you have five kids and lost all your stuff including your home. Since I have insurance I am supposed to magically have the money to pay rent for my family to live, pay for disinfectants and cleaners and for construction materials. So no, I shouldn't need help from FEMA at all.

That’s Sean Moran’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
