In November two Maine wardens and their cadaver dogs went to New Orleans to assist in recovery efforts. They were recently asked to return and had already located at least one body. However, because of numerous problems they were forced to cut their second visit by one week.
Some of the things that caused this:
- the promised veterinary care for the dogs was not made available (areas being searched have broken glass and septic sludge)
- the wardens returned to their hotel rooms to find themselves locked out, they were told they would have to reapply as flood refugees
in order to get the rooms back
- FEMA is saying they will not pay for the rooms because Maine "double dipped" for the rooms provided in November, Maine says they haven't even filed yet for that reimbursement
Looks like things are still a mess.
