JUNE 28, 2006 - Posted at 7:48 a.m. CST

 

CARUTHERSVILLE, MO - The first 20 eligible southeast Missouri families displaced by an F-3 tornado that ripped through Caruthersville and Pemiscot County on April 2 will begin moving into temporary mobile homes located in a group site built by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) this morning.

The site was built by FEMA contractors, including the Army Corps of Engineers, who managed the project.

"The torando which was so destructive in Caruthersville and the surrounding area made it necessary to establish a group site," said Richard Hainje, regional director for FEMA Region VII.  "The group site will provide tornado victims temporary housing, helping them in their recovery process.  We are pleased that the families displaced by the storm can now take the next step in rebuilding their lives."

The group site can house 133 families, and 100 mobile homes are currently ready for occupancy by eligible tornado victims.  Accessible units are available for occupancy in the group site.  Disaster victims who registered for assistance and are eligible to receive temporary housing in the group site are currently being contacted by FEMA about their move-in dates.
