Bacon Why FEMA watches the Waffle House menu during hurricanes

As Hurricane Florence nears, FEMA will be keeping a close eye on the Waffle House. The agency coined the term “Waffle House Index” during the 2004 hurricane season to measure the effect of a natural disaster on an area.

If the eatery shutters or limits menu items during or after a hazard — they know the community took a major hit.
