FEMA is Bringing in Manufactured Homes to New Jersey

I’ll bet a lot of people displaced by Sandy have been waiting for this news.

FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate said they have several hundred mobile homes in their inventory of emergency supplies and have started moving some of them to disaster zones in New Jersey and New York.

And, of course, the need is great.

According to an article in the Washington Post:

“At least 4,000 residents were in New Jersey shelters. On Wednesday, some storm evacuees were moved from shelters to tent-like housing at a racetrack in Oceanport, N.J. because a building that had been used as a temporary shelter had to revert to normal use.”

Forty pre-fab homes are already enroute, but there’s no word yet as to exactly where the manufactured homes will be located.

State officials in New Jersey and New York will decide where the houses will be placed, according to federal officials.
