FEMA Temporary House Ends

Posted: Updated:

The FEMA housing mission in Minot has come to an end-- after providing temporary housing to thousands of families following the flood two years ago.

FEMA brought in more than 2,000 manufactured homes to address a housing shortage following the June 2011 flood that swamped 4,100 homes and other structures in Minot and Ward County.

The only trailers left are those that people have purchased.

Contractors moved the remaining units away from the site all week. 

More than 260 flood victims bought their mobile homes and many will move permanently to what is now called Wheatland Village. 

The FEMA units sold for about $15,000 each.

For many flood victims, the price was right, since housing costs have skyrocketed in Minot. A city committee voted Wednesday to let two dozen of them to keep the FEMA trailers in city limits another eight months.
