North Carolina Didn’t Need FEMA To Weather Hurricane Florence (HBO)

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — Onslow County Manager David Cotton has been camped out dealing with the Hurricane Florence response at the county’s Emergency Operations Center since Wednesday.

During that time, he’s only slept six hours.

“Everything was so fast-paced. High-tempo decisions having to be made in the middle of the night: Opening shelters, how should we do this, weighing in on critical decisions all throughout this evolution,” Cotton told VICE News Monday morning.

By then the storm had just about passed and the sun was out in Jacksonville, the Onslow County seat and the town where the Emergency Operations Center is based. But Cotton won’t be resting anytime soon.

“We’re moving out of the sprint phase and moving into more of a marathon of the recovery,” he said.

This is the epicenter of the emergency response effort for the entire county, which lies just 50 miles north of where the eye of the storm hit when it first made landfall on the North Carolina coast. While the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Brock Long, faced controversy in Washington over his alleged misuse of government vehicles, the hurricane response efforts took shape in North Carolina’s counties and towns, independent of the federal authorities and their support.

The heads of all the county’s key departments — police, fire, transportation and others — all gathered in a single, windowless room for the entirety of the storm, snatching sleep whenever possible in cots tucked into side offices.

Cotton oversaw the entire operation and eventually called in federal support as the storm caused historic levels of flooding across the region. County officials made direct calls to the National Guard, Coast Guard, and Marines from Camp Lejeune for additional resources as flooding became too much for local authorities to handle.

They largely left FEMA out of it, and that was intentional: Cotton said emergencies are better handled by the staff on the ground, and that the federal agency will come in to support recovery efforts, which could last as long as two years.

Long, for his part, defended FEMA against criticism of its handling of past natural disasters, telling VICE News that, “There are some unrealistic expectations placed on this agency.”

“The disaster response works best when it’s locally executed, state managed and federally supported. FEMA is not a first responder,” Long said.

Trump Calls Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas’ at White House Event Honoring Native American Code Talkers

At a White House event honoring the last surviving Native American code talkers, President Donald Trump revived his controversial nickname for Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

“You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump told the three Native American code talkers, each roughly 90-years of age, to his right. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas. But you know what, I like you. Because you are special. You are special people. You are really incredible people.”

Trump praised the code talkers “bravery” and said “from the heart, from the absolute heart, we appreciate what you’ve done.” The code talkers were Native Americans who served in the military to help with communications in both World Wars.

Trump has blasted Warren, elected to the Senate in 2013, as “Pocahontas” for more than a year. The attack is based off one launched by former GOP Sen. Scott Brown, now Trump’s ambassador to New Zealand, who was Warren’s opponent during her 2012 Senate bid. Brown accused her at the time of using her Native American ancestry to her advantage after reports surfaced that she listed herself as a minority in a years-old directory of law professors.

One of the Native Americans, Peter MacDonald, who had served in the Marines during World War II, had delivered a speech on their service prior to Trump’s comment and later praised Trump for having military leaders serve in important administration roles.

Trump praised the speech and said he did not need to read his speech since the preceding speech was so good.
