    FEMA Sends Trucks Full Of Ice For Katrina Victims To Maine

    The trucks started arriving this weekend, and they're expected to keep coming through Sunday.


    City officials say they have no idea why the trucks are here, only that the city has been asked to help out with traffic problems. But the truck drivers NEWSCENTER spoke to said they went all the way down to the gulf coast with the ice -- stayed for a few days -- and then were told by FEMA they needed to drive to Maine to store it.


    The truck drivers, who are from all over the country, tell us they were subcontracted by FEMA.
    They started arriving over the weekend, and city spokesperson Peter Dewitt says as many as 200 trucks could come to the city by the end of the week.


    The trucks are storing the ice at Americold, a company with a warehouse on Read Street in Portland. People who live nearby say all the traffic has been baffling them for days.


    The trucks can only unload 4 at a time -- so the city is allowing some of them to sit at the International Marine Terminal and at the Jetport's satellite parking lot.


    No one NEWSCENTER talked to has any idea when, or even if the ice will go back to the gulf coast.
