FEMA offers transitional shelter to West residents

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency has activated a plan to provide transitional shelter for residents of West whose homes were destroyed or severely damaged by last month’s fertilizer plant explosion.

The plan allows affected residents to stay in motels for a limited amount of time at FEMA’s expense.

Those eligible are being notified by phone, and calls are already in progress, the agency said in a news release Sunday.

The initial period of assistance will last through May 18.

Coordinating officer Kevin L Hannes says FEMA is working closely with state and local officials “to develop a long-term housing solution to help West residents until their homes are repaired or rebuilt.”

Fourteen people were killed and more than 200 were injured in the April 17 blast.
