Ida victims move from tent camps to trailers 4 months later


SCHRIEVER, La. (AP) — More than four months after Hurricane Ida destroyed their houses, some south Louisiana residents are just now moving from tent camps to government-supplied trailer homes.

The Courier also reports that some camps set up in huge tents are closing, with people moving to camps with smaller tents. The newspaper reports that a state test program is starting to reduce the backlog of people waiting for the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide trailers.

FEMA says it approved the program and is paying for the trailers. Terrebonne Parish Councilman Carl Harding says the trailers free up needed space in the tent camps.
