Storm victims offered MEMA cottages
Published: May 10,2010
ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency says it has cottages available for sale to survivors of last month’s deadly tornado who cannot afford to rebuild in eight counties designated as disaster areas.
The tornado spawned by the April 24 severe weather killed 10 people in the state. Officials say the cottages are available to those living in Attala, Choctaw, Holmes, Monroe, Oktibbeha, Union, Warren and Yazoo counties.
The used cottages will be sold “as is.” Inspections will guarantee that all appliances work, but no warranty will be given on the cottage or appliances. The prices of the cottages will be based on the survivor’s income but begin at $351 for one-bedroom units and $567 for two-bedroom units.
To determine eligibility, a potential buyer must first register for assistance with FEMA by calling 1-800-621-3362 (FEMA).
