Some families who lost their homes in the Joplin tornado have been given a seven-month extension to stay in government housing, but it will no longer be free.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has granted a request to keep its temporary housing units in Joplin until June 9, 2013. The trailers had been scheduled to be removed on Nov. 9, when the eligibility for free housing expires.
