Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast ten years ago, in August 2005. Though the storm is long over, one of the most potent symbols of the lamentable recovery effort—the infamous chemical-laden FEMA trailers—lives on, and surprisingly far from New Orleans. Huge numbers of the same exact FEMA trailers handed out after Katrina are now nearly two thousand miles away, in the oil boom towns of North Dakota, where a different kind of housing crisis is taking place.
