Summary:

Dozens of wealthy beach towns and coastal communities that sustained little damage from Hurricane Isabel in 2003 received millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded disaster relief from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, The Washington Post learned through a FOIA request. Some of the money paid for emergency workers' overtime, but it also funded sand, tennis court lights and bicycle path repairs.
