FEMA Brings Water to Residents Affected by Water Ban

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) continues work in Charleston after a chemical leak Thursday.

...

FEMA is providing supplies to a regional staging area in Charleston. As of Saturday, FEMA had delivered nearly 1 million liters of water from its distribution centers in Maryland

Friday, President Barack Obama signed an emergency declaration for federal disaster assistance to West Virginia to supplement state and local response efforts.

Direct federal assistance is currently available for Boone, Cabell, Clay, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, Putnam and Roane counties to alleviate the impacts of the emergency.

1. Tone Deaf Boehner: No New Regulations Needed in Wake of Chemical Spill

IOW.. another fooking Lie from boner..



"Speaker John Boehner (R-Oh.) told reporters on Tuesday that the chemical spill in West Virginia last week is the result of the Obama administrationís lack of enforcement of existing regulations and not the result of ongoing Republican attempts to reduce environmental regulations and budget cuts that cripple enforcement agencies."

19. Rachel's doing all the punishing of CChristie and his minions by

hammering them with FACTS. Too bad this didn't come out before the election.. But, it's out now.. and if this drags down the Bully and his bullshit then we have a whole lot of Dems in NJ and Intrepid reporters to thank for it.

It's not just the GWB anymore.. Christie has a lot to answer for with all these revelations coming forth about his unscrupulous behavior.

29. I just saw a clip of boner talking about blaming Obama for this leak

on Rachel's show, fresh.. and he looked worse than this drawing. He really looks all bloated and unhealthy. And, he sounds bad. His inner ugliness has busted through to the surface.

2. I say FEMA needs to bill the Freedom Chemical Co. I wonder if this company is like the one in West

TX that only needed a one million dollar insurance policy? All the company's assets were held in another name so there was no one to sue.

excepts FEMA to pick up the bill? I don't think so.

4. More on boner's press conference.. blames Obama for company not being inspected since 1991..

"During a press conference, the Speaker shifted blame to President Obama, even suggesting that the president was somehow responsible for the fact that the company that caused the leak leaving 300,000 residents without safe drinking water had not been inspected since 1991!"

27. No doubt! The poison is leaking into john boner's district in

Cincinnati and he's blaming it on Obama, applegrove.

"During a press conference, the Speaker shifted blame to President Obama, even suggesting that the president was somehow responsible for the fact that the company that caused the leak leaving 300,000 residents without safe drinking water had not been inspected since 1991!"

I saw some of his lies in a clip on Rachel's show and he looked not very healthy and sounded bad.

32. I meant he's blaming the whole thing on the President and it is now

inching towards...

"CINCINNATI -- As a mysterious chemical leak from West Virginia inched along the Ohio River toward Cincinnati this week, city officials announced plans to keep drinking water safe while local ecologists and water quality experts offered more questions than answers."

link

Cincinnati to shut intakes as a precaution

"Cincinnati will shut down its water-intake valves on the Ohio River for at least 48 hours starting Tuesday night in order to avoid potential contamination from the West Virginia chemical spill."

link

Hopefully this will get cleaned up soon and Chemical companies start getting their storage facilities Inspected! It would have been so nice to have found the leak before hand. If they weren't having it done to save money.. well, look at how much money this is going to cost them!

37. They have to cut the water off in Cincinnati

 

because it has gotten into their river, too.

The dude in the second picture with the girlfriend is a twice convicted felon - just what you want being in a position of leadership.

EDITed because I can't spell Cincinnati.
