FEMA gives away $85 million of supplies for Katrina victims


www.cnn.com

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) -- FEMA gave away about $85 million in household goods meant for Hurricane Katrina victims, a CNN investigation has found.

The material, from basic kitchen goods to sleeping necessities, sat in warehouses for two years before the Federal Emergency Management Agency's giveaway to federal and state agencies this year.

James McIntyre, FEMA's acting press secretary, said that FEMA was spending more than $1 million a year to store the material and that another agency wanted the warehouses torn down, so "we needed to vacate them."

Just another astonishing failure for FEMA. So many supplies that could have been used by so many people, instead they pay to keep it all locked away in a warehouse. Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that FEMA referred to this event as 'not news' when asked about it by CNN. In other words, 'meh, not a big deal'.
