FEMA, Manufactured Housing Units, Behind the Scenes Look, Hurricane Florence Backgrounder



Hurricane Irene was a storm that hit North Carolina a few years ago that can give some insights into what the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is doing to prepare for the expected strike Friday of Hurricane Florence. FEMA stressed yesterday that they’ve learned from every prior event.


Manufactured Housing Units (MHUs) are one of several options that federal officials can respond with when it comes to disaster relief/emergency housing needs.

FEMA and MHUs have evolved since this video linked here or shown above with Adobe flash was produced.

If Hurricane Florence does hit the East Coast, as many weather experts fear, hopefully FEMA officials will do a better job with their terminology (the t-word is significantly overused in the first linked video, above).


Anecdotal evidence suggests that the wrong terminology impacts price. But it also impacts people’s emotions, see what poet Lois Requist said who rejected the use of the t-word with regard to her home, by clicking here or the image above.

If, God forbid, Florence hits as a major natural disaster, manufactured home production could be shifted, as we learned last year.

When money is earned, it can be spent. So it may seem odd to discuss profits as “false.” As anyone who’s watched the movie Scarface knows, crime is a business. It may be illegal, but it’s business. The risk/reward equation for a criminal enterprise is different than for a legal business.
