FEMA Trailer Use Still Dropping

Posted: Updated:

As more Minot residents make strides in flood recovery, the number of temporary housing units is dwindling.

FEMA announced today that the numbers of occupied housing units in Ward County has dropped down to below 70 and the number of sales has risen above 200.

Three units remain on private property and 66 are left in east Minot.

The option for purchasing the homes is still open to residents.

A FEMA Spokesperson says the summertime is an ideal time for displaced residents to make the transition to permanent housing.

(Brian Hvinden, FEMA Spokesperson)"There's a lot of folks that are able to make repairs to their flood damaged homes and get back into their permanent home. Additionally, we've been very successful in our sales program."

Residents living in the housing units have less than two months as the FEMA housing mission comes to a close on September 24th.
