While some of the big companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft got 
some press about their wireless experiments during the post-hurricane 
recovery, the FCC hasn't heard about the experience of wireless ISPs 
during the recovery.

Were there any wireless ISPs in south-Texas, south-Florida, Puerto Rico or 
U.S. Virigin Islands?  How did they survive, or able to speed recovery 
efforts? Were there resources they needed?

WISPs don't normally report in the FCC DIRS or NORS disaster reporting 
systems, so WISPs are a blank spot.
