Timely News and Tips for Disaster Victims

The State of Virginia has identified and leased a mobile home site, located at the Southampton Agri-Business Industrial Park in Southampton County, where it will place travel trailers and mobile homes for hurricane victims. The temporary housing will be provided to those unable to secure satisfactory housing while seeking a permanent residence. The Federal Emergency Management Agency will finance the development of the site and purchase the 100 mobile homes. The Army Corps of Engineers is designing and developing the site. Those qualifying for the homes will pay utilities. Each applicant will be evaluated on a case by case basis, and as each is qualified, a mobile home will be purchased. Travel trailers will be purchased locally.
