CD Director Says FEMA is Ready for Ernesto

"The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency says FEMA is ready to deal with a new natural disaster, even if Hurricane Ernesto hits Florida.

Director David Paulison told NBC News' Meet the Press Sunday, We are ready for a hurricane, regardless of where it's going to hit, whether it's the Gulf (Coast) region or the Atlantic or the west coast of Florida where (Ernesto) seems to be heading right now.

FEMA was criticized harshly for its slow response to Hurricane Katrina last year.
