FEMA to Halt Debit Cards, Use Bank Deposit

Quick! What's your bank account number? What?! You don't know it by heart? How are evacuees supposed to know that info when many don't have any more than the shirts on their backs?

Of the ones that do how many have access to their bank information and account numbers?

The debit card solution may have not been the best idea but it quickly puts much needed funds into the hands of those who need it most.
