Disaster readiness – US vs Pakistan

I'm curious. With all of America's security and rescue preparations over the past 4 years, how is it that Pakistan was able to get military and civilian personnel on the ground, and rescue operations well underway, within 24 hours of the earthquake that hit without warning, and the US was unable to do the same after a week – and they had almost a week's warning in the first place?

How is it that the mightiest superpower, the most technologically advanced, the most culturally superior (allegedly) country in the world was unable to do in a week what Pakistan was able to do in a day?
