Governor Blanco of Louisiana issued a press release
explaining that former FEMA Director Mike Brown erred in his testimony before Congress claiming that she hadn't included the affected parishes in her request.
I noticed on September 7th
that FEMA had erred in its preliminary disaster declaration and excluded the parishes that would be most subject to damage.

may have located the problem: FEMA's Map Assistance Center
. If you are more used to asking about "supersizing" than reading maps, you may not give the correct answers about locations, or even be aware that counties are called parishes in Louisiana.
I'm sure Brown is one of those guys who won't stop and ask directions.
