FEMA hides up to a thousand trailers from displaced Sandy victims
December 13, 2012 in U.S. News
Thousands of displaced families in New York and New Jersey have no homes to go to, but FEMA has not provided the housing it promised, even though it has up to 1000 winterized mobile homes sitting in a parking lot at a storage site in Maryland.
It has been more than a month since Hurricane Sandy devastated the Northeast, but 11,000 families are still waiting to have their homes repaired. With freezing temperatures approaching, a lot of these families are facing the cold with no heat or electricity.
Many of these displaced families have requested that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) supply them with temporary mobile homes to endure the winter. The agency provided trailers to families most recently in North California after Hurricane Irene destroyed coastal homes.
The post-storm devastation remains so dire in some parts of New York that displaced communities have made please for donated RV’s once they heard FEMA was denying their request for mobile homes
