FEMA is getting rid of storm trailers.

Thousands of trailers and mobile homes in Mississippi, serving as temporary housing after Hurricane Katrina, are expected to be gone by early fall.

About 28,000 trailers are scattered among five staging areas in Lamar, Forrest and Marion counties. The General Services Administration is auctioning them off in large, single lots. After initially offering single lots of 400 to 500 trailers in single auctions at each staging area, multiple sales involving thousands of units are now being held simultaneously in all three counties.
