It seems that George Bush has declared a lot of disasters during his time in office, more than Bill Clinton and way more than Ronald Reagan:

During his seven and a half years in office, President Bush has declared 422 major disasters — severe storms, tornadoes, wildfires and floods — or more than one a week. That is 11 percent more than President Bill Clinton’s disaster declarations and 130 percent more than President Ronald Reagan during their full two terms in office.
That doesn’t seem especially relevant to anything, but the article explains why it’s interesting, and it’s not a bad read. The only thing that strikes me is that the biggest disaster — Spurious George’s presidency itself — is one that hasn’t been declared.
