FEMA Updates Wildfire Recovery In Oregon
The fires of September 2020 feel simultaneously like a long time ago and very recent. Their impacts are certainly still being felt, as people scramble to find affordable housing in a region that lost thousands of units.

More remains to be done, and we get an update from Paul Corah, based in the Oregon FEMA office.
