FEMA to Provide Hope Trailers to Kansas Tornado Site

HOPE, AR - The Federal Emergency Management Agency has a batch of about 50 trailers ready to be sent to Greensburg, Kansas, which was largely wiped out by a tornado.

Most of the mobile homes will come from Hope, where FEMA has about 8,500 trailers at the local airport, ready to move out to disaster sites.

Earl Armstrong, a FEMA spokesman in Texas, says 44 of those trailers will be coming from Hope.  Another six will come from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Armstrong says four doublewide office-style trailers are to head to Kansas from Florida and Baton Rouge.

Armsrong says the mobile homes will first be sent to Amarillo, Texas, where they will be staged until Kansas says its ready to hook them up.
