    FILE -In this Dec. 15, 2005 file photo, the moon rises over FEMA trailers and damaged homes in St. Bernard Parish, La. Nearly six years have passed since Hurricane Katrina drowned this city in misery, but many residents haven't forgiven the Federal Emergency Management Agency for its sluggish response to the storm. Now another delayed reaction by FEMA _ a stop-and-start push to recoup millions of dollars in disaster aid _ is reminding storm victims why they often cursed the agency's name.( AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)

    In this May 26, 2011 photo, Cordova, Ala., Mayor Jack Scott discusses the city's decision to ban FEMA mobile homes as temporary housing for tornado survivors. Residents are angry about the decision partly because the city allowed its police headquarters to move into a mobile home similar to the FEMA rigs, and the temporary City Hall where Scott stands is in an even smaller trailer.
