    FEMA's vaunted "lean forward" strategy that called for advanced staging of supplies for emergency distribution failed to live up to its billing in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

    Macworld Daily News Wednesday - September 07, 2005 FEMA locks Mac users from hurricane relief By Jonny Evans Mac and Linux-using hurricane survivors are unable to use Federal disaster relief claim form services online. This is because the much-criticized US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created a service that only works with Windows and Internet Explorer 6. This acts to the frustration of survivors lucky enough to be able to access a Mac or Linux computer, and to the reported consternation of disaster relief teams on the ground.
