Pamlico storm victims must vacate FEMA trailers by April 1
Posted February 22, 2012
Bayboro, N.C. — The Federal Emergency Management Agency is going door to door to alert people in Pamlico County that time is running out for them to vacate the temporary trailers the agency set up in the wake of Hurricane Irene.
People living in the FEMA housing units must move out by April 1.
The deadline was included in paperwork signed by storm victims when they moved into the trailers, but many of them say they haven't been given adequate opportunities to appeal.
Those who don't leave the trailers by April 1 could be subject to legal action and fees based on fair market rent, the agency said.
FEMA said it has worked with storm victims to come up with a "permanent housing plan" and will continue to assist people with housing resources and rental referrals.
