CAPE CORAL, Florida – At Tranquility Lakes RV Resort, more than half of the temporary trailers have been moved into.
On Monday, a FEMA representative confirmed that 54 of the 105 trailers are being used by families who lost their homes in Hurricane Ian.
The Tranquility Lakes RV Resort is near Northwest Cape Coral. It is off of Burnt Store Road.
Joe Prigun said it was worth the wait.
His Fort Myers home on the corner of Summerlin Road and McGregor Boulevard was destroyed. He said that seven feet of water were needed.
Prigun said he’s happy to have this new trailer northwest of Cape Coral, but he’s spending a lot of money on gas driving back and forth to his house to fix it up.
“It is a place, but it is an hour away. I’ll try to find something that’s closer. “I could be working on the house instead of doing this,” Prigun said.
Also moving in was Rennee Gradomski.
She said that this is a good place for her to stay while she gets back on her feet.
“I hope to find a new place and move on in five to six months,” said Gradomski.
