Temporary Housing Problems Plague Mississippi Coast

KILN, MS - NOVEMBER 14: Billy Arceneaux of Biloxi smokes a cigarette while making fishing nets from his FEMA trailer in a park November 14, 2005 in Kiln, Mississippi. Arceneaux, who is handicapped by the loss of a leg and who has diabetes, could not get a handicapped trailer and was told to apply for a SBA loan for more assistance. Because his wheel chair will not fit through the door, he must crawl into his home each night. State officials say FEMA has met about 55 percent of the state's adequate housing needs with travel trailers. An estimated 18,000 Mississippi families are still living in tents or condemned homes since Hurricane Katrina left them homeless in August. (Photo by Marianne Todd/Getty Images)
