Federal housing for Joplin tornado victims reaching an end
Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that nearly 600 federal trailers housing Joplin residents since the May 2011 tornado are slowly emptying, with only about 80 of the trailers still occupied.
Those who remain in the trailers will have to start paying rent in January and have until the beginning of June to find other housing.
The empty trailers are being given back to the federal government and will go to Crowder College in Neosho. Some will be auctioned to the public.
