NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Nearly 10,000 federally issued trailers and mobile homes remain in Louisiana nearly three years after Hurricane Katrina — and with attention now on Gustav.

Of those, about 2,880 remain in New Orleans, most in front of homes people are trying to rebuild following Katrina.

As of Wednesday, more than 1,000 remained in each St. Bernard, St. Tammany and Calcasieu parishes, according to figures released by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. St. Bernard was virtually wiped out by Katrina; Calcasieu was hit by Hurricane Rita, in September 2005.
