People living on the southern coast are bracing themselves for the impact of Hurricane Harvey, but one key city is reportedly “ill-prepared.”
Despite enduring the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, New Orleans is not equipped to deal with this new storm, with “many of the city’s pumps and turbines out of service,” according to an NBC News report. City officials are turning to emergency evacuation plans as the Category 2 hurricane strengthens and threatens to rise to a Category 3-level storm.
On Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck encouraged Americans to prepare for the storm and come together as communities.
“As long as we remember we’re Americans; we make it,” he said. “When the chips are down, that’s when we’re at our best.”
Glenn blamed the lack of preparation in New Orleans on state corruption, saying that it’s not the federal government’s responsibility to make sure that states spend their resources wisely. He and the guys also talked about another state in financial trouble: Connecticut.
“We may have spent money on things we shouldn’t have spent money on,” Glenn paraphrased Connecticut officials’ explanation of the problem.
