FEMA To Replenish Eastern Arkansas Mobile Homes Five at a Time

APRIL 25, 2006 - Posted at 7:56 a.m. CST

 

MARMADUKE, AR - The Federal Emergency Management Agency plans to move five mobile homes at a time from the Hope airport to eastern Arkansas for residents affected by this month's tornadoes and thunderstorms.  FEMA spokesman Win Henderson said the agency has leased a five-acre plot at Smoot's Mobile Home Sales along U.S. 49 in Marmaduke, where twelve mobile homes remained yesterday of 25 moved to Marmaduke last week.

The mobile homes are among more than 10,000 stored at the Hope airport for use by victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  Most have sat unused at the airport because of restrictions on where they can be placed.  After recent tornadoes, FEMA approved using trailers in other storm-damaged areas.
