FEMA to Close Last Katrina Mobile Home Site in Mississippi

December 10, 2008

The Federal Emergency Management Agency says the last of its group mobile home sites placed on the Mississippi Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina will soon close.

Recently, two of the three remaining FEMA-built group sites were shut down. All residents have moved out of the Ellzey site in Biloxi and the Frisby site in Gulfport.

FEMA, working with state and local agencies, is in the process of removing mobile homes from both locations. The last group site is expected to close this month.

Alec Watson, acting head of the Mississippi Transitional Recovery Office, said the closings are a tangible sign of the progress Mississippians are making toward complete recovery from the 2005 hurricane.
