New Orleans Update

By Remy Benoit

Well, here we are 16 months after Katrina in a major American port city with over 100,000 families still living in FEMA trailers. There are thousands more all along the Gulf Coast. We hear a great deal about Homeland Security, but a major city of our country still needs enormous amounts of work done.

And we have to ask:

Why the delays?

Why contracts with money going out of the state
when the state and its people are in such dire circumstances?

Why are people in Florida still living in trailers from their hurricanes?

From Nola and Bruce Nolan FEMA may delay trailer, rent cutoff State has requested 12 more months.

From USA Today, Peter Eisler, and Truthout New Orleans Feels Pain of Mental Health Crisis.
