The Stafford Act: Title V: Section 501; Subsection (b)(b) Certain Emergencies Involving Federal Primary Responsibility. The President may exercise any authority vested in him by section 502 or section 503 with respect to an emergency when he determines that an emergency exists for which the primary responsibility for response rests with the United States because the emergency involves a subject area for which, under the Constitution or laws of the United States, the United States exercises exclusive or preeminent responsibility and authority. In determining whether or not such an emergency exists, the President shall consult the Governor of any effected State, if practicable. The President's determination may be made without regard to subsection (a).The sheet scope of this disaster would have allowed the President to declare that it was too big for the state to handle and the Federal Government had to step in.
