We can see it now. Noah steps out of his ark after the flood and asks the Federal Emergency Management Agency for a disaster declaration. After all, it rained for 40 days and 40 nights, and flood waters reached a height of 150 feet. FEMA turns him down. That wasn’t a single storm, the agency says, but 40 separate ones.
It’s the same reason the agency gave Gov. Kate Brown after she sought a disaster declaration for 10 counties where damages were the worst after a series of storms hit the state between Jan. 7-20.
