FEMA Head: 'Uncertainty' Is 'Keyword' For Hurricane Dorian

By    |   Sunday, 01 September 2019 11:30 AM

Acting head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency Pete Gaynor on Sunday said the “keyword” is “uncertainty” for both the course and impact on the U.S. mainland of Category 5 Hurricane Dorian.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Gaynor said FEMA is “dealing with uncertainty pretty much the entire time with Dorian.”

“The keyword… uncertainty,” he said.

He said the storm surge is one of the things “we worry about most.”

“Ninety percent of all weather related deaths come from water, flooding surge, 50% of those deaths are people in cars driving through floodwaters,” he said. “You have to take this storm seriously. 

“I know watches and warnings will be going up here shortly for a lot of the coast of Florida and then into Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,” he added. “Georgia and the Carolinas, it's coming your way, take time to prepare now. “

Gaynor also said President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have their “finger on the pulse” of storm.

“Daily, hourly,” he said of updates that are given to Trump. “If I'm not talking to [Trump] staff… we’re talking to him.”

“The vice president is involved, the entire staff is involved. He has his finger on the pulse,” Gaynor declared.
