EATONTOWN - FEMA trailers have arrived at a lot in Eatontown and will be made available to Monmouth County residents still homeless after Sandy.

The trailers were parked at a Woodlawn Trailer Park today and are receiving finishing touches. They could be ready for residents in a matter of days.

Officials say the sewer and water systems are checking out fine. Crews must now install electricity.

Crews inside the Woodlawn Trailer Park say FEMA is working with engineers to see how many lots they can use and where they can place the mobile homes.

According to the Affordable Housing Alliance, $850,000 in grant money will be spent to add another 17 trailers at a nearby lot.

The trailers will be made available to residents of places like Sea Bright, Monmouth Beach and Asbury Park who were forced out by Superstorm Sandy.
