(Bloomberg) – With just a week to go before hurricane season, top jobs at the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency remain vacant and critics say that will make it harder for the government to respond to disasters.

FEMA lacks a second-in-command and three of four associate-administrator posts are either vacant or temporarily filled. The agency’s external affairs director and press secretary left in February, followed in April by the head of insurance and mitigation. Separately, the White House adviser in charge of coordinating disaster response departed a few days later.
