Hurricane Relief

Tue, Oct 24, 2006

Since the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, it became increasingly clear that FEMA trailers do not provide suitable living conditions. While FEMA provides trailers at no charge following a natural disaster, the trailers offer little in terms of hope or comfort, and they are most certainly not a long-term solution. The temporary trailers are not intended to house people for longer than 18 months, due to the risk of fire. Unfortunately, the use of these trailers is commonly extended beyond their intended application. Between August 13 and September 26, 2004, four hurricanes made landfall in Florida leaving 17,000 people without homes. One third of these people were still living in FEMA’s travel trailers after two years. In comparison, Hurricane Katrina left one million people homeless. It’s evident that past housing solutions for future hurricanes will continue to fail if something is not done differently to house those in the Gulf Coast.
