Transcript for FEMA ready with supplies for Irma victims in Florida
headquarte headquarters. David Kerley is there. They have deployed FEMA across the region. Reporter: They have. They have been busy. At this point here at the fee ma response center the question is where will they be sending the material. They're adjusting their plans. Remember we thought Miami was going to get hit hard. Now it's looking like tampa/st. Pete. But over the last few days trucks of material have been moving south. Staged over the border of Florida, Georgia, Alabama as well. Utility trucks have been coming from the north, south and west and closer to this area. As soon as the storm passes they can move in. Now the state of Florida has a lot of material and consumables already on site and ready to go. FEMA is the backup. They brought in and prepared more than 10 million liters of water, meals, tarps, everybody standing by. Where is it going to have to go? Which area is the hardest hit? They are watching the storm like the rest of us. And they are coming off hurricane Harvey as well. What's moral like there? It's good. They talk about having to pull a lot of people out of Houston into this area to try and help in Florida as well. They do work shifts. They're working 12 on, 12 off. Morale is good. I'm not going to say they aren't tired George. I bet they are. Thanks very much.
