Natural disastrous when you when you led The state of Arkansas your daughter now Leads the state of Arkansas what what Can and should for that matter Government do in the wake of these types Of national or state tragedies Well one of the things we always have to Remind people is the government can't Come in and rebuild your house they Don't do that that's not FEMA's role Either a lot of people think that's what Happens it isn't that's why people have Insurance and their insurance companies Will hopefully help them but what Government can do is to clear the debris Out of the streets and out of the Pathways they can help them with Temporary shelter FEMA will do that There are also other ways to help them Get those documents back that they've Lost whether it's their Medicare card or Their driver's license or their birth Certificate making sure that they can Start just putting their lives back Together The toughest part I think is just the Devastating impact there is a certain Shell shock I've been in two tornadoes Personally one when I was 11 years old One that hit the governor's mansion when I was governor in 1999 we had two Ef-5 tornadoes one in 97 one in 99 when I was in office And and you walk through these uh
