PORT SULPHUR, LA - MAY 11: Herschel Barthelemy sits outside the FEMA trailer he lives in with six other children May 11, 2009 in Port Sulphur, Louisiana. Seven children from the family are living in the trailer after their home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Approximately 2,000 families in the New Orleans metropolitan area still live in FEMA trailers nearly four years after Hurricane Katrina. Eighty percent of those still in trailers are homeowners who haven't been able to return to their storm damaged houses. May 1 marked the end of the Temporary Housing Program for Katrina victims as those still living in the trailers have been given a May 30 deadline to move out or face possible legal action.
