These are both new and used trailers that were ordered for Katrina victims and are still currently in storage across the Gulf Coast of the US. Trailers are in at least 6 storage yards in at least three states including Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi with the two largest yards being the Hope Arkansas and Purvis Mississippi locations each of which has over 10,000 units in storage. The question is why are these trailers not being delivered to the people who need them? I actually saw trailers still being delivered in the New Orleans area in late April 2007 over 20 months since the storm hit. Yes it is taking FEMA almost 2 years to get these people trailers to live in! When I was in the 9th Ward and then in St Bernard Parrish back in Feb of 2007 and then again in May 2007 I saw many locations that had trailers delivered to them over that time period but why did it take over 18 months to transport these units to the people? When these trailers are being brought out to the peoples locations the delivery crews are just using regular pick up trucks with a trailer hitch, no special trucks needed to move most of the units some larger ones do take a larger truck to move.
