FEMA Delays Plan to Move More Trailers from Hope

JUNE 28, 2006 - Posted at 8:01 a.m. CST

 

HOPE, AR - The Federal Emergency Management Agency has delayed its plan to remove 3,000 mobile homes that are stored at the Hope airport.

The trailers were moved to the airport after Hurricane Katrina and have become a symbol of inefficiency for the hurricane relief effort.  About 10,000 trailers remain at the airport.

FEMA delayed the move to concentrate on trailers that were installed in Florida after a hurricane there in 2004.  An agency spokesman says the 3,000 trailers should be moved out of Hope by September.

FEMA is to move 1,500 of the trailers to Maryland, 500 to New Jersey and 1,000 to the West Coast.
