FEMA trailers make local stopover on way to final destination

More than 40 white trailers line a lot belonging to Ponderosa Service in southeast Mitchell, a final stop before the buildings once dedicated to helping victims of disaster are transported to American Indian reservations.
Pete Brenden, owner of Ponderosa Service, said he’s hauled approximately 300 of the trailers from Texas to tribes in North and South Dakota, where the trailers are meant to be used as temporary housing.
“We take three to four a week,” Brenden said.
