FEMA Housing Extension

FEMA Housing Extension

Posted: Updated:

Housing questions still loom over nearly 300 families living in temporary housing units provided by FEMA after the 2011 Mouse River Flood.

It's been a long and bumpy road for many people --- but they have been granted a little more time to make decisions.

Governor Jack Dalrymple requested a 90 day extension for those still searching for affordable living.

A new state law setting up a program for FEMA trailer residents to qualify for loans to buy the trailer also needed more time.

The 3 month extension of FEMA rentals was welcome news to Coreen Hart.

Hart is now renting a trailer on 55th.

She says that leaving Minot would be devastating for her, so she plans to stay on the lookout and take full advantage of this extension.

(Coreen Hart, Living In FEMA Trailer) "The uncertainty, and being unstable, not knowing what's going to happen, it's scary. And I'm sure it is for a lot of people. It's not just me. There are several people that still don't have a place to go. But we have a roof over our head and I am so thankful for that."

The current set date for moving people our of the FEMA trailers is September 24.

The 2013 flood that was not --- could cost nearly three-and-a-half million dollars.

Spring flooding in North Dakota was not as severe as predicted, but officials who are totaling up the damages say the costs are piling up.

Federal, state and local experts have started preliminary damage assessments to determine the bill for flooding in 18 counties.

State officials say the preliminary reports show damages of $2.5 million in Cass County, $503,000 in McHenry County, $250,000 in Richland County, $75,000 in Ward County, and $24,000 at Spirit Lake.

The review is the first step in determining whether Gov. Jack Dalrymple will request a presidential disaster declaration.
