CRAFT IN AMERICA

Storm Cycle: FEMA Trailer

  • Aired: 08/04/2010
  • 02:49
  • Rating: NR
Tom & Athene Paquin, 9 mos. pregnant, evacuated their home. Charlotte was born 3 days later. They returned to extensive damage, especially in the baby's room. The salty slurry of mud & sand infiltrated everything. They got a FEMA trailer two months later, and it was so small they needed to use a room of the house, so Tom had to build a porch to connect to the two, creating a home for his family.
