FEMA has its own glitch

The Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) experienced a Y2K problem with a database of reservists and regular staff that FEMA uses to deploy personnel when a disaster is declared. The system apparently went down right after the century rollover. A workaround has been developed and the system is expected to be re-deployed later this week with Y2K-compliant code.
