Hey, don't knock the trailers. I am a landlord in North Carolina on the coast. We have hurricanes EVERY year. My rental trailers come out better than the houses. Hurricane Isabel (Sept 2003) did almost as much damage to Northeast North Carolina as Katrina to MS. When a tree falls through your roof or a tornado hits, It destroys what ever it lands on. Trailers, houses, bank buildings. We evacuated to save the camper which was insured but lost the tractor which was not. dud </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

we lived in an itty bitty town called Venice at the mouth of the MS river. End of the road. There was an actual sign down there at the CG station that said "this is not the end of the world, but you can see it from here". No kidding. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Yea No Kidding.. The end of the world.
Worked there a lifetime-ago now.

Are you and yours getting along OK now?
I would like to see the photos of ole'
Venice if I could. I had a house north
of N'awlins that had roof damage and
the fema report was "insignificant!"
damage. Don't have it now. . . .

New start a-gain.

Found this looking for information about
the fema trailers that might hit the
auction blocks in a few weeks....
noticed this was first posted October 2005.

Thanks. Best Wishes.

The date of that article was Dec 2005, but I know there are still some that don't have trailers.

My sister just got hers not too long ago. They were not going to give her one because they were saying there were too many in the neighborhood and it was taxing on the resources like water. This is a neighborhood not damaged too bad, so many relatives were living in FEMA trailers in front of family's homes. She was living in her home despite the damage because they had no other place to go. Her roof had a leak and it took the Corps of Eng a while to bring the blue tarp. The leak damaged some of the structure and caused major mold. She developed bad asthma and now has to do breathing treatments everyday. They were still going to deny her a trailer. She also did not have homeowners insurance and is waiting on FEMA to help with the repairs. They wanted her to continue to live in the home despite her many trips to the ER. She fought it and finally got one. She is still in it now. 2 of her children still live with her and she has 2 grandchildren that visit often, both babies.

On a positive note, my mom's house is almost done. She has her kitchen cabinets in, but not installed yet. She says she will be glad when she no longer has to wash dishes in her bathroom sink. Her house had to be gutted and then fixed from there. She was actually back in her house before my sis got her FEMA trailer. Of course her FEMA trailer is now sitting empty on some lot some where because you can't share it or pass it on. Ridiculous.
