Yep. We figuted it might take a few years for FEMA to start doing its job.

Monsters and Critics

It will take about three years to get all New Orleans` Hurricane Katrina victims who want a temporary trailer into one at the current pace. A review by the New Orleans Times-Picayune shows only 2,796 trailers in Orleans Parish had been occupied as of Jan. 24, 14 percent of the nearly 20,000 ordered. Federal Emergency Management Agency officials said most of those are private trailers on private property. A group of mass trailer sites are expected to begin opening this week in the city. Only 151 trailers for people left homeless by the storm have been set up. Ten sites of 413 trailers are expected before Mardi Gras.
