The headlines have in so many cases moved on to other topics.
But there are still thousands in Texas, and Florida – and millions in Puerto Rico – who are still struggling in their respective post-hurricane recoveries.
More than 500 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) manufactured housing units (MHUs) used in Louisiana after last year’s flooding has been moved to Texas to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.
According to FEMA, per reports from the AP and KNOE 8 in Baton Rouge, “FEMA says the manufactured housing units sent to Louisiana’s neighbor had been vacated by flood victims who returned to repaired homes or found other permanent housing.”
“More than half the 4,490 Louisiana households who received mobile homes [sic] after the August 2016 flooding have moved out of the units, according to FEMA. The agency says the number of mobile homes heading from Louisiana to Texas will grow larger as even more Louisiana occupants wrap up their home rebuilding.”
A series of recent reports related to FEMA are linked below.
