Limestone County family moves into FEMA trailer

Posted: Updated:

A Limestone County family has reason to smile.  After losing everything in the April tornadoes, Jerry Helms and his mom received a new trailer from FEMA Sunday Morning. 

The home came with a full size kitchen and furniture. It also came with weather radios and a built in siren that sounds when there's a severe weather threat.

Due to the injuries Jerry's mom suffered from the storm, FEMA built a wheelchair ramp and made sure the bathroom is handicap accessible.

The family signed up for assistance and the home three weeks ago. "There's not words for it, I mean they did an outstanding job getting here, getting what we needed. Getting my mother set up in the trailer, like I said, it took three days for them to get everything done," said Jerry Helms.

The family will be allowed to keep the trailer for eighteen months, afterwards they hope to be able to buy it.
