Final FEMA collection of storm debris

CHALMETTE, La. -- Less than two weeks shy of the third anniversary of
Hurricane Katrina, the final FEMA-funded collection of storm debris in St.
Bernard Parish is under way.

Although the Federal Emergency Management Agency has agreed to cover the
cost of debris pickup until the end of the year, those needing it picked up
must make their requests before September 15.

Damage from the hurricane, and the massive flooding that followed it, was
extremely heavy in St. Bernard Parish. All but two buildings in the parish
flooded after the August 29, 2005 storm.
