Katrina evacuees trapped in trailers By MARY FOSTER, Associated Press Writer
2 hours, 4 minutes ago

August 4, 2007

BAKER, La. - It was bad enough when Hurricane Katrina chased Carrie Lewis out of her assisted-living home in New Orleans. Now she fears the rest of her life may be spent in the isolation of a federally sponsored trailer park.

Because hurricanes Katrina and Rita destroyed so much affordable housing, Lewis and thousands of others displaced mainly the poor, elderly and infirm have nowhere else to go.

"I want to go home," said Lewis, 79, who now lives in the Renaissance Village trailer park. "They don't have places for old people in New Orleans yet. What am I supposed to do? I don't want to die in a little trailer in the middle of a field somewhere."

The Federal Emergency Management Agency provided 120,000 trailers to people displaced from their Gulf Coast homes by the 2005 hurricanes.

Pamela Lomis and her two children feel abandoned. Lomis lives in a FEMA trailer in the Sugar Hill trailer park in the midst of cane fields near Convent, La., about midway between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

It's 20 miles from the nearest grocery store. A single bus leaves each morning at 9 a.m. and returns at 4 p.m., Lomis' life line to a world that seems distant.

"We just sit around here with life slipping by," Lomis said. "We're just on hold. Just waiting for something that never comes," she said.

She isn't alone.

"Our biggest challenge is finding housing for people," said Mario "Sam" Sammartino, who supervises Catholic Services caseworkers at Louisiana's FEMA trailer parks. "What's left here is the poorest of the poor. Anyone with a job or a house has already left."

Many of the hurricane evacuees from New Orleanians didn't own homes or lived in the city's 5,100 public housing units. But federal officials plan to tear down four projects and replace them with mixed-income developments, and private rental housing if it can be found is expensive.

Sammartino and others working to resettle residents believe it will take at least five years to clear the FEMA parks. About 45,000 trailers are still occupied in Louisiana, 20,000 in Mississippi, 17,000 in Texas and 400 in Alabama.

Along with the isolation and cramped quarters in the trailers, now there are claims the trailers themselves are making people sick.

Reports of illness had trickled in to FEMA, but documents presented to Congress recently showed FEMA discouraged investigation of formaldehyde in its trailers. The chemical, commonly found in manufactured housing, can cause respiratory ailments and even cancer.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention workers began collecting samples last week from FEMA trailers in Louisiana and Mississippi.

"That's just one more thing on the list of things I worry about," said Helen Felton, who lives in a trailer at Renaissance Village.

"I want out of this trailer, out of this place, but I get my little Social Security check. Do you know how far $660 goes?" asked Felton.

Those who remain in the trailers will start paying rent to FEMA in 2008, starting with a modest $50 a month and then rising.

"How are you going to pay if you don't have money," asked Sharon Norah, 50, who lives on disability assistance in a Renaissance Village trailer with her 9-year-old son, Calvin.

Renaissance Village, with 565 trailers about 100 miles northwest of New Orleans, is the Taj Mahal of FEMA parks, said Carol Spruell of Catholic Charities. Unlike some others, it has a basketball court, a tent for community activities, laundry rooms and a playground. Volunteer groups provide health care, mental health services and educational services.

There is bus service to Baton Rouge, about 15 miles away, but the hours in which it runs limit employment options for people like Albert Renfroe, 57, a cook in New Orleans before Katrina.

"I'd like to get back to something more normal," said Renfroe. "But if I could get a job I don't have a way to get back from it. The bus just doesn't run late enough."

FEMA is pushing to get people out of trailers, said spokesman Bob Josephson. All hurricane-related housing assistance ends in March 2009, but replacement housing has been slow to develop in some areas such as New Orleans.

"We do provide rental assistance," Josephson said, but the help is temporary.

"We have a difficult challenge, particularly with people on fixed incomes," he said.

Arrow Re: Hurricane Watch...

Oh My..........

Hurricane Dean could HIT Houston or New Orleans by Tuesday.

This is not good news if you happen to live on the Gulf Coast, especially N. Orleans.

Check out the hurricane path here, it is already a #3 class hurricane and churning north to the Gulf waters. Houston has recently been deluged with over 8 inches of rain, if this hits there it would be devastating.

Say a prayer.

Hopefully, they will not evacuate people into the Super Dome this time and leave them there in the dark without food, water or facilities.

Gustav swells to dangerous Cat 4 storm off Cuba

Associated Press Writer 17 minutes ago


Gustav howled into Cuba's Isla de Juventud as a monstrous Category 4 hurricane on Saturday while both Cubans and Americans scrambled to flee the path of the fast-growing storm.

More than 240,000 Cubans were being evacuated some hurriedly as the storm bore down on the nation's tobacco-rich western tip. Across the Gulf of Mexico, Americans made wary by Hurricane Katrina streamed out of New Orleans and other coastal cities.

Gustav already has killed 81 people by triggering floods and landslides in other Caribbean nations.

Lights flickered in Cuba's capital as shrieking winds blasted sheets of rain sideways though the streets and whipped angry waves against the famed seaside Malecon boulevard. State television stations went dark several times.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Gustav had sustained winds of 145 mph with higher gusts as the heart of the storm began hitting Cuba's outlying island province of Isla de Juventud, where officials cut power to many areas.

"The rain is not so intense, but there is a lot, a lot of wind," said Isabel Alarcon from Nueva Gerona, the largest city on the island of 87,000 people. "The officials, they have told us the wind will be bad first but then the rain could cause flooding into the night."

The government's AIN news agency said officials were evacuating some 190,000 people from low-lying parts of westernmost Cuba, Pinar del Rio province, where the tobacco for Cuba's famed cigars is grown. AIN reported that 50,000 already had been evacuated farther east.

Cuba halted all buses and trains to and from Havana where some shuttered stores had hand-scrawled "closed for evacuation" signs plastered to their doors. At those still open, residents formed lines to stock up on bread. Authorities boarded up banks, restaurants and hotels and cars waiting to fill their tanks stretched from gas stations.

"It's very big and we've got to get ready for what's coming," said Jesus Hernandez, a 60-year-old retiree who was using an electric drill to reinforce the roof of his rickety front porch.

By Saturday afternoon, Gustav was about 110 miles south of Havana and it was moving northwest near 14 mph.

Hurricane force winds extended out 70 miles in some places.
The U.S. naval base at Guantanamo, Cuba, was hundreds of miles to the east, out of the storm's path.

Gustav rolled over the Cayman Islands Friday with fierce winds that tore down trees and power lines while destroying docks and tossing boats ashore, but there was little major damage and no deaths were reported.

Haiti's Interior Ministry on Saturday raised the hurricane death toll there to 66 from 59 and Jamaica raised its count to seven from four. Gustav also killed eight people in the Dominican Republic early in the week.

Gustav was projected to hit the U.S. Gulf coast roughly around Louisiana on Monday, though forecasters cautioned that the track could vary.
People poured out of New Orleans along highways Saturday and the government announced plans for broader evacuations.

Meanwhile, the hurricane center said Tropical Storm Hanna was projected to near the Turks and Caicos Islands late Sunday or on Monday, then curl through the Bahamas by early next week before possibly threatening Cuba. It had sustained winds near 50 mph Saturday and the hurricane center warned that it could kick up dangerous rip currents along parts of the southeastern U.S. coast.

Oh, shutup, Operative! I mean, who in their right mind doesn't know New Orleans is drowning? You didn't actually think we believed all that nonsense about rebuilding it did you? How do you recover from a cateragory 5 huricane that demolished a city that took 300 years to build. Give me a break. It was bad planning in the first place. Who builds their city in such a stupid place besides Las Vegas?
