PRLog - May 14, 2011 - NORTHFIELD, Ill. -- The recent tornado related disasters in the south have highlighted the fact that all forms of construction can be leveled by these merciless storm events.   With hundreds dead and thousands homeless, what is the solution for housing all the victims of these grim stories?   An obvious answer may seem ironic to some, modern manufactured homes.

Manufactured housing businessmen and association leaders are working with FEMA and public officials to move storm victims out of hotel rooms or other temporary shelters.  Sherry Norris, Executive Director of the Alabama Manufactured Housing Association (AMHA), says the Federal Emergency Management Agency had the foresight last year to build manufactured housing units in preparation for future disasters, and stage them at Selma, Alabama.  

Norris told MHMSM.com, “Some people are living in tents.  I heard of one family who was trying to build a shelter out of the debris of their home.  Those people need one of our houses ASAP.”

Businessmen David Roden and Spencer Roane are among those working with association leaders and public officials to come up with solutions that save tax payers money.  They stated the need to avoid the post Katrina mistakes.  

Their plan calls for using energy-efficient and appealing 3 bedroom two bath manufactured homes.  These homes would be permanently installed on vacant land-lease sites, saving government tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure or rental costs, while giving victims a good place to stay. Once the disaster recovery allows storm victims to leave, the land-lease community owners could purchase the homes from FEMA at a pre-set price.  

The solution also creates and supports jobs during the disaster recovery phase.
