Following up on an article we published June 30, The Minot Daily News reports from Minot, North Dakota, that Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) officials are in Minot planning the placement of what will likely become several manufactured housing developments of FEMA homes for victims of the recent flooding. Officials are trying to keep the temporary homes near the original communities, but outside the 100-year flood plain. The focus is on stability and continuity as the beginning of school approaches. Placements will also be determined by proximity to utility hookups, and the housing will be sited on blocks, anchored and skirted. FEMA officials must first assess the extent of damage to residents’ primary homes in order to determine eligibility for a FEMA home. The homes have one to three bedrooms, and range in size from 12 feet by 40 feet to 14 feet by 60 feet.
