LSU anthrax research Professor Hugh-Jones has said that he does not expect a great threat with these little nasties, as without electricity the refridgerators will slowly warm up and thus kill any stored organisms. Ditto for any liquid nitrogen storage devices.
Dr Raoult Ratard, the Louisiana State Epidemiologist, with police permission took a team into the BSL3 Lab at Tulane and they injected full strength Clorox bleach in all vials thus insuring all bacteria and viruses are dead.
Also, Tulane President Cowen has said that Tulane's National Primate Center in Covington, La. where they test infected animals is already functioning under near normal conditions.
Messages from (Tulane) President Cowen: Please scroll down to the September 5th statement.
It would seem that this is a no longer an issue or a concern, professionals (not FEMA) took care of the situation.

I see nothing in that statement that specifically addresses those concerns. Moreover, do you have links to the other statements made?
