FEMA visit brings hope to Eagle

Posted: Sunday, July 05, 2009

EAGLE - Residents in the city of Eagle are finally getting some relief after a springtime flood that damaged homes and businesses.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency arrived this week and met with all the people that lost their homes and need to rebuild.

Andy Bassich, a coordinator with the rebuilding Eagle effort, says FEMA is funding 13 log cabin kits for individual assistance. It will pay for the supplies needed, and the people themselves will begin to rebuild.

Eagle is about 200 miles east of Fairbanks at the end of the Taylor Highway. Many rely on the spending of summertime visitors. The May flood wiped out the community's cafe and hotel.
