BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Gov. Jack Dalrymple is asking the Federal Emergency Management Agency to extend its temporary housing program by six months in Minot as the city continues its recovery from historic Souris River flooding last summer.

FEMA's temporary housing program is set to end on Christmas Eve. Dalrymple wants it extended until June 24, 2013. He says the state's congressional delegation is supporting the request.

FEMA made more than 2,000 mobile homes available after the flooding for displaced residents. More than 1,200 are still occupied.
