KEY WEST, Fla. - Several FEMA travel trailers were delivered Wednesday to the Naval Air Station Key West and are to be given to residents who have been approved by the organization for assistance due to Hurricane Irma.
So far, FEMA has approved 84 trailers for Monroe County residents whose homes were too damaged after the storm to live in, according to ABC 10 News.
Monroe County Assistant County Administrator Christine Hurley says the trailers are "good news" for the area at the Monroe County Board of County Commissioners at its monthly meeting, which was held Wednesday night.
