A mayor in a small town devastated by a tornado has sparked outrage over his refusal to let homeless residents stay in trailers provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Jack Scott has been branded heartless after his decision not to waive a local law banning single-wide trailers in the town of Cordova, Alabama.
He said he fears the temporary accommodation could become permanent and says he doesn’t want run-down mobile homes parked all over town.
Angry residents met on Saturday night and called for Mr Sciott’s removal from office.
One resident, James Ruston, said his house was knocked off its foundation by the tornadoes that blasted through the town last month and is still uninhabitable.
He thought help had finally arrived when a truck pulled up to his property with a mobile home from FEMA.
Then he was informed of the ban on single-wide mobile homes.
Mr Ruston and many others see the city’s decision as a sign that leaders don’t care that some people are barely surviving in the rubble.
