Fewer than 1,000 still in FEMA mobile homes after 2016 flood

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The number of Louisiana families still living in FEMA trailers after the 2016 flood in the capital region has dropped to below 1,000.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency says more than 3,500 households have moved out of the mobile homes nearly two years after the disaster. That’s about 82 percent of those who received them following the 2016 floods.

Data released Wednesday showed that 999 households remain in the FEMA mobile homes.

Four hundred thirty of those families are in East Baton Rouge Parish. Most of the rest of the families living in the manufactured housing units are in Ascension and Livingston parishes.

After the August 2016 summer flooding, FEMA says it provided mobile homes to people across 16 parishes.
