FEMA Updates Progress For Oregon Fire Victims
The beginning of the new year is supposed to mark the beginning of the major cleanup after the September fires in the region. But there have been some weather delays in cleaning up the remains of burned homes and vehicles.
Meanwhile, the effort to give fire victims housing goes on. FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is providing more temporary "trailer" housing in several parts of the state.
And FEMA provides other services, including crisis counseling for people not coping well with the fire aftermath. FEMA's Jassiel Olivero Melo joins us once again with an update on the recovery effort.
