When I first read the headlines about FEMA using Waffle House to keep track of Hurricane Florence, I thought it might be a joke.
Waffle House has a storm center! That's because they are open 24 hours a day and often remain open during natural disasters, providing food and resources to first responders.
Pretty cool, huh?
FEMA monitors a "Waffle House Index," a color-coded indicator of what restaurants are open, closed or offering a limited menu, to gauge how well an area will recover from a hurricane, tornado or other hazard.
Now...if only San Antonio could get one or two!
