Sending FEMA Trailers From Hurricane Katrina To Haiti.  

The trailer industry and law makers are pressing the government to send thousand of trailers left over from the debacle that was FEMA effort to help in Hurricane Katrina by sending 100,00 trailers that were potentially laced with formaldehyde.

It has been contended that one woman died from formalehyde fumes and many others began falling ill. High levels of formaldhyde can cause breathing problems and perhaps cancer. Many of the trailers have sat idle for many years, and many are damaged according to an article in The Tennessean, dated January 30, 2010.

A letter from Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss. chairman pf the House Committee on Homeland Sercurity, said the trailers could be used as temporary shelter or emergency clnics. What?

However, Haitian Culture and Communication Minister Marie Laurence Joycelyn Lassegue said Thursday she had heard of the proposal but added: : I don't think we would use the. I don't think we would accept them.
