Seems like FEMA is taking a cue from a most unlikely place: Max Rameau, of Take Back the Land.
first broke news of the activist's brilliant solution for what to do with all of these foreclosed homes: move homeless squatters in
FEMA folks seem to like the idea so much they're looking into the possibility
of using foreclosed homes as temporary shelter for evacuated hurricane victims. The idea is in its early stages, and FEMA will have to get permission from the banks that own the property. We also have to wonder: The number of foreclosed homes might be plentiful now, but we hope FEMA doesn't rely on the plan too much because there might not always be an endless supply of empty abodes.
