  1. Are they plotting something? It seems strange to me why you'd need to 'fake' a disaster like this one.

  2. Unusual, no; to hire actors, yes.

    I've been involved with a variety of disaster drills and exercises over the years and they're pretty much par for the course these days. They're held in order to plug any holes there may be in emergency response to a real event and to learn what to do, and what not to do.

    Nothing nefarious here, but hiring actors is a bit odd; perhaps they didn't get enough volunteers to play 'victims.'

  3. they also had one for Houston on July 4th thru the 6th

  4. there was also a posting on Craigslist in Houston 4 July 4th through the 6th
