FEMA Still Shitting on Hurricane Katrina Victims

Victims of Hurricane Katrina were dealt another blow this week when it was discovered that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) horded $85 million worth of household goods in a warehouse in Fort Worth, Texas.

According to FEMA‘s press secretary, James McIntyreFEMA gave the household goods away earlier this year to other federal and state agencies because another agency wanted to tear down the warehouse.

The household goods stored in the warehouse, which ranged from kitchen goods to bedding were stored in the warehouse for two years until they were given away.

These are exactly the items that we are desperately seeking donations of right now — basic kitchen household supplies,” Martha Kegel, executive director of Unity of Greater New Orleans told CNN.com. “These are the very things that we are seeking right now. FEMA, in fact, refers homeless clients to us to house them. How can we house them if we don’t have basic supplies?

Ever since Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in August 2005, the victims of this disaster continue to face hardships caused by displacement and the lack of help from the FEMA organization.

FEMA received severe criticism in 2005 due to it’s slow response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster.
