FEMA Trailer Trouble Makes Repeat Performance In Indiana

Last updated on Monday, July 21, 2008

(UNDATED) - As the famous New York Yankee Yogi Berra is often quoted as saying, “It’s deja vue all over again.”

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is advising those living in FEMA trailers of mold being found in the temporary housing trailers issued to Indiana flood victims.

So far, FEMA officials have found mold in 11 trailers, all with exterior water heater compartments.

FEMA has been criticized for the trailers provided to hurricane victims along the gulf coast after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita with their mold and formaldehyde issues, and now it's happening again here in South Central Indiana.

Anyone who is currently living in a FEMA trailer and is concerned about mold issues is urged to call FEMA at (800) 621-3362 which is (800) 621-FEMA.

1340 AM WBIW welcomes comments and suggestions by calling 812.277.1340 during normal business hours or by email at comments@wbiw.com
