Federal agencies here to help when Ana hits Hawaii

Officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency are here in Hawaii in case we do get hit by damaging weather.

“We have a warehouse here on island,” Ken Suiso of the local FEMA office said. “As an example, we have emergency generators that can be used for critical facilities. We also have some critical commodities that might be water, food, tarps and cots and some other critical needs, so we don’t have to ship them in from the mainland.”

Other federal agencies are coordinating with FEMA as well, including the Department of Transportation, Department of Energy, Human Services, and the Army Corps of Engineers under the Department of Defense.
