FEMA Follies

Looks like Hurricane Katrina wasn't the first time FEMA has bungled recovery efforts. In "FEMA: A Legacy of Waste," the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reviews 20 recent disasters to show how the agency has paid out hundreds of millions of dollars to people who were untouched by the disasters. To produce this series, reporters Sally Kestin, Megan O'Matz, John Maines and Jon Burstein analyzed a million claims for FEMA assistance and traveled around the country interviewing officials and talking to residents. The details of waste and fraud revealed in this series can serve as blueprint to improve how our nation responds to emergencies.
