All come furnished with the basics for people who lost everything in the historic flood. However, construction hasn't started on communities to put these trailers.

One family is happy to qualify, but they just hope a trailer is available for them.

SHAWN FULTON – Burlington: "I'm looking for the trailer because a camper is good until maybe October. After that, the pipes are going to freeze.”

FEMA officials expect people to be living in the trailers by September.
