The White House has released this Situation Room photo of the president and his advisers meeting to discuss "hurricane preparedness":

The photo, titled "President Obama Holds A Meeting On Hurricane Preparedness," carries this caption: "President Barack Obama holds a meeting on hurricane preparedness, in the Situation Room of the White House, May 30, 2013. Seated at the table, clockwise from lower left, are: Chief of Staff Denis McDonough; Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano; Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood; OMB Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell; National Hurricane Center Director Rick Knabb; NOAA Acting Administrator Kathy Sullivan; Interior Deputy Secretary David Hayes; FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate; Lisa Monaco, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism; Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz; and Alyssa Mastromonaco, Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)."

Interestingly, the White House still has not released a Situation Room photo taken the night of the September 11 terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
