Though FEMA administrator Craig Fugate has been quick to remind anyone who will listen that the states are in charge of responding to the series of massively powerful tornadoes that ripped across Alabama and other parts of the South, his office has also been making sure everyone knows what his agency is up to with a flurry of press releases outlining each step.
"It's nice to see you here," Sheila Hurd told Napolitano as she stood on a pile of rubble that used to be a house in the neighborhood where she'd spent her entire life. "We really appreciate it."
"I don't know how, who made what happen, but we found her," Hurd said with a soft smile as she hoisted heaps of dust covered clothes retrieved from the rubble.
