FEMA Gives Replacement Home Keys To Reservation Storm Victim


OGLALA, SD - Seven months after flooding, hail and high winds damaged or destroyed hundreds of homes on the Pine Ridge Reservation, federal officials gathered Wednesday near Oglala to present the keys to the first of more than 200 replacement homes to its new owner.

You could call it a new lease on life for Marvin Goings, but without the rent.

The Oglala Tribe member lost his rural home southwest of Oglala to a storm last May. But Wednesday Federal Emergency Management Agency officials turned over the keys to a trailer home for Goings and his grandchildren.
