While Alabama tornado victims are still literally homeless, with nowhere to sleep; unlike New Orleans, it is not for lack of resources. FEMA attempted to supply trailers. Visionary Mayor, Jack Scott could foresee a time when the trailers would become an ugly blot on the landscape and refused delivery of trailers for the citizens.
Of course Scott did let FEMA deliver a few trailers. After all, city business can’t be conducted under a tarp.
