But now, apparently he's OK with government programs monitoring potential natural disasters like, say, the National weather Service monitoring Tropical Storm Lee, which he cites 3 times in his declaration of emergency:
WHEREAS, the National Weather Service does not at this time predict this storm to develop into a hurricane, however, the National Weather Service does calculate a high probability this storm will develop into a Tropical Storm. . .
WHEREAS, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the next 72 hours for parts of southeastern Louisiana, which places lives and property in jeopardy;
So the difference is what, that there are no volcanoes in Louisiana?
