A FEMA trailer source has sent me an alarming article from the New York Times. BP oil spill workers are buying up FEMA trailers to say in while they're cleaning up, at least in Louisiana.
With the fifth anniversary of Katrina approaching, we thought we were about done with these trailers. This article says some workers want a place for their families to stay, so why not a FEMA trailer. Many of the trailers were fine, but others contained unacceptable levels of formaldehyde, making the occupants ill.
We hope these workers will be ok. If not, we can expect a new round of lawsuits. These trailers, as I understood it, were to be sold as salvage, not for habitation.
