Tornado Cottages Available for Storm Survivors

Posted: Updated:

MEMA now has cottages available for sale to survivors of last month's deadly tornado.

The cottages are for displaced residents who cannot afford to rebuild in the eight counties designated as disaster areas.

Cottages are available to those living in Attala, Choctaw, Holmes, Monroe, Oktibbeha, Union, Warren and Yazoo counties.

The cottages are used and will be sold "as is."

Inspections will guarantee that all appliances work but no warranty will be given on the cottage or appliances.

The prices of the cottages will be based on the survivor's income.

They begin at $351 for one bedroom units and $567 for two-bedroom units.

To determine eligibility, potential buyers must first register for assistance with FEMA.

To do so, call FEMA at 1-800-621-3362.
