about today’s FBI announcement that they’ve discovered “fraud” by officials following Hurricane Katrina.

Meanwhile, more than 3,200 people remain missing after the storm, according to this AP article dated Friday:

Baton Rouge (AP) – More than 3 200 people are officially still unaccounted for nearly five months after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast.

A total of nearly 11 500 people were reported missing to the Find Family National Call Centre, a centre run by federal and state workers. The reports included people from throughout the Gulf Coast area, but most were from Louisiana.

As of Wednesday, all but about 3 200 had been located, the agency said.

Some of those still listed as missing likely have already been found by their relatives but the centre hasn’t been notified of their status, it said.

More than 1 300 Katrina-related deaths have been reported across five states, with 1 101 of those from Louisiana.
