FEMA still not in Jackson County!
      Sun Sep 04 2005 02:06 PM

Word is that even after a week, FEMA is still not in Jackson County, and that county and city officials gave up waiting for them after three days, and have been trying to do what they can on their own. Apparently the focus has been on Harrison County, and the only thing that has come to Jackson County is water, ice, and some food.

The Red Cross presence has been barely visible, and is completely overshadowed by church organizations, who have managed to drive down truckloads of supplies on their own.

This is very upsetting...I hope that things change soon.
