From WPTV: Governor Rick Scott sent a letter to the president Sunday, again looking to get help from Washington. Scott said that FEMA incorrectly faulted Florida for failing to demonstrate the need for assistance.

In his letter, Governor Scott is placing the blame for this situation on the federal government for failing to maintain the Herbert Hoover Dike around Lake Okeechobee.
