FEMA Sending Trailers To Pine Ridge Reservation
PINE RIDGE, S.D. (AP) — The federal government is sending trailers to South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where residents are still recovering from severe storms last spring.
Crews are delivering 50 Federal Emergency Management Agency trailers to the Oglala Sioux tribe to help tribal members affected by storms, straight-line winds and flooding over a three-week period in May.
The first two homes were shipped from Alabama and arrived at Ellsworth Air Force Base near Rapid City on Thursday. They’ll be sent from there when tribal officials are ready for their arrival.
