The best place to be, for the general population is indoors during a snow storm, and off the streets so snow removal equipment and the operators of the equipment can work. get it yet?

FEMA workers know or should know and be prepared to work their efforts in storms.
That's really sad that FEMA closes up shop like that.
Come on! Are rescue efforts of disaster victims done in a shop?

The shop is for people to apply for recovery help!

Tell that to the victims of the storm that just might leave their cold homes to go to the FEMA disaster center to seek a better shelter. "Closed for Storm. Come back tomorrow".

You think the paper pushers in DC know what's going on in SI or LI or the Jersey shore ?
But the local mayors and state governors do.
What prevents any local mayor/ governor from taking more responsibility for their own disaster mitigation/recovery?

This is not a shelter!

It is a temporary office where people can go to fill out applications.

Can anyone here understand the difference?

Is there any lick of common sense here?

Perhaps FEMA doesn't want people (staff, volunteers, residents) traveling to these locations during the storm. Seems reasonable considering the cold, wind, and flying debris. I mean, the Red Cross is doing the exact same thing.

You do not need to fill out an application for emergency shelter. Emergency shelters are set up and open to anyone who arrives.

I am surprised at the lack of common sense I and reading on this thread!

FEMA aren't the ones providing shelters right now.

The information on shelters has been available since the storm.
