FEMA Trailer Makers to Pay $43 Million to Katrina Victims

The manufacturers and contractors that provided FEMA trailers to Hurricane Katrina victims agreed on May 28 to pay $43 million in a class action lawsuit brought by victims who said they suffered health problems from the industrial toxins, including formaldehyde, used to build the trailers. The award will be divided among 60,000 plaintiffs, though that number makes up less than half of the 114,000 households that were provided FEMA trailers after Katrina struck in 2005.
