FEMA Trailers: A Continuing Public Health Scandal

 

I highly recommend that you watch the following amazing video on YouTube titled Where Have All the Trailers Gone in which medical anthropologist Nicholas Shapiro searches for the remaining FEMA trailers that were used in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and finds large numbers of them in the oil fields of North Dakota.

My May 16, 2018, and July 9, 2018, posts presented the stories of two women on the Gulf Coast whose families were sickened by the FEMA trailers they lived in after Katrina. Their exposures to high levels of formaldehyde inside these trailers resulted in multiple chemical sensitivity and fragrance sensitivity. 

Subsequent posts will also deal with the FEMA trailer issue.
