It's been two months since Hurricane Ike slammed parts of Southeast Texas -- and housing is still a challenge.

promising to get trailers more quickly to residents.

A FEMA spokesman says local zoning regulations and getting waivers
allowing trailers to be placed in floodplains have slowed the process.
