Travel trailers left in Mississippi, following Hurricane Katrina, are still being auctioned off by the Federal government.

Going into the fall, the Federal Emergency Management Agency had about 3,000 trailers to unload. According to the Hattiesburg American, the government has sold just over 2,300 following weekly auctions rotating through five locations.

The trailers were used as temporary housing in the aftermath of the 2005 storm.

    There is absolutely no excuse for a media outlet to misspell a word. "Government"! WOW! Mississippi continues to be stereotyped because of errors such as this...and idiotic KKK rallies in Oxford. WTOK, clean up your act!
