FROM THIS EPISODE

Last night, Los Angeles was hit by an earthquake that registered at 4 on the Richter Scale. Although not big enough to do any damage, it is big enough to remind us of what just might happen.

Producers:
Karen Radziner

Main Topic Is America Ready for the Next Disaster?

Around the county, disaster planners at the state level are roasting the Department of Homeland Security.  Since Katrina, they say, Washington has been trying to minimize its own exposure and blame the states for not being prepared.  Despite past promises, they say, the states have not been allowed to help draw up what’s called the National Response Framework.  

Guests:
Patrick Yoest, Congressional Reporter, Dow Jones Newswires and Wall Street Journal
Jane Bullock, former FEMA Chief-of-Staff
Tim Manning, Response and Recovery Chair for the National Emergency Management Association
Mike Byrne, Senior Vice President at ICF International
