FEMA Extension | VideoSarahbeth Ackerman | 8/21/2012
But if you talk with FEMA residents in Minot, there`s an attitude of "I`ll believe it when I see it".
There`s been a lot of talk in Washington, DC, about moving forward with the extension, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions, especially for those living in FEMA housing.
"It`s still frustration, nothing has said what I need, what I need to have done, I still don`t have electricity. I don`t have this, I don`t have that...And it`s called a nightmare," says FEMA resident, Gen.
Gen, has been a FEMA resident for about a year now and still feels angry toward the flood.
"This flood should never,ever,ever have happened. Minot helped them build a dam and it was supposed to be a dry dam," says Gen.
Residents need some answers and FEMA housing says they should have those answers for them in the next couple of weeks
"We`re working on it, ya know very diligently. We know what this means to people here, we know how eager the community is to get some sort of sense of direction to where their housing options might lie in the future," says FEMA specialist, Jerry DeFelice of the Regional Office.
Although FEMA representatives could not say 100 percent that the extension is approved, Senator Kent Conrad told city officials today, he is certain that there will be another 6 months.
