If we are already going to be spending the money at some point regardless, and we just don't know when or where it will be, we should be over prepared, not under.Being over prepared (funded) could do 2 very good things: 1) It could save lives and property. All the lives lost and property damaged that could have been averted had we have acted sooner. 2) We can already have the funds allocated appropriately, and we won't have to take money from some other department, hurting another sector of the economy, just to cover the disaster relief deficit. And if the full yearly budget is not spent, then we will have a surplus, meaning the next year we won't have to put in as much.
