Burlington, Vt., October 28, 2011 -- When a disaster strikes and the president declares a federal disaster, money not only goes directly to disaster survivors in eligible counties, but also to the local economy from temporary workers deployed to support the recovery efforts. About 500 federal employees have been deployed to Vermont since Tropical Storm Irene hit on August 27.  Photo by Wendell Davis/FEMA
