TROPICAL WEATHER-WHERE’S HOME
BENNETTSVILLE, S.C. — Officials overseeing evacuations and emergency rescues following Florence’s catastrophic crawl across the Carolinas will soon face a long, hard recovery. Among the first tasks: finding temporary housing for thousands whose homes were destroyed or severely damaged. North Carolina had about 10,000 people in shelters Tuesday, and South Carolina had another 320. The Federal Emergency Management Agency reduced its reliance on trailers after they became symbols of the troubled federal response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. FEMA’s downsized trailer stock led to shortages last year amid high demand after Hurricane Harvey slammed Texas and Hurricane Irma struck Florida. By Russ Bynum and Gary D. Robertson.
