The House that FEMA Would Build
The federal government is teaching people along the Gulf Coast how to build stronger houses.
FEMA has a traveling display featuring construction techniques that should withstand most hurricanes. The four-by-six foot "house" on wheels is actually just the wood frame. At just about every place where there's a nail holding two timbers together, there's also a metal brace on the outside.
FEMA plans to move the display throughout Mississippi through August.
