FEMA Trailer Occupancy Dropping

Posted: Updated:

The number of families relying on housing provided by FEMA has dropped below 300.

Federal Emergency Management Agency officials announced today there are now 291 families living in temporary housing units from FEMA.

234 of the units are at group sites on along 55th Street Southeast in Minot and near Burlington.

36 are at Holiday Village in Minot.

And 21 are on private property in the city.

At the peak, there were more than 21-hundred of the FEMA trailers in use by victims of the Mouse River flood who had no other housing options.

FEMA officials report nearly 100 of the units have now been sold to people living in the trailers.

And those sales are expected to continue as agency workers consult with residents about their long-term housing plans.
