FEMA Trailers Reach Alabama Storm Survivors
Relief is coming to some storm survivors, who were left homeless following the devastating tornadoes last month in the South.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) says the first temporary housing units have been delivered to Alabama residents left without a home after the recent storms, WHNT-TV, Huntsville, Ala., reported.
Phil Campbell was provided with 11 of the units this weekend, with at least 30 more of the travel trailers expected to arrive soon. Franklin County officials say the manufactured housing is going up just outside the Phil Campbell city limits, inside a trailer park.
Those living in the units will have their cases reviewed each month to determine their eligibility for continued FEMA assistance. Survivors can live in the units up to 18 months.
The number to contact to register for FEMA Disaster Assistance is (800) 621 FEMA (3362).
