    BONITA SPRINGS — The future remains unclear for hundreds of flood victims living at an Estero shelter, even as homeowners in east Bonita Springs begin coordinating federal aid and meeting with damage inspectors.

    As of Thursday, 579 people were registered with the Red Cross shelter at Estero Community Park. Most are from trailer parks Manna Christian Village and Saldivar, where floodwaters remain too high for residents to return.

    “As it stands right now, we’re going to continue providing shelters until they can get back into their homes,

    It may have been in 1996, with the completion of I-75 that interrupted the natural sheet flow, that the Manna trailer park was flooded, along with cows and horses standing up to their necks on the other side of the roadway. Many streets on the west side of the highway with the original homes were at least 3-feet deep in water. Meanwhile, Quail Run, a fancy gated community, was watering the golf course.
    FEMA, in those days, did not bring in any temp housing trailers for anyone because they claimed that they would not put these kind of assets on a flood plain, and could not get permits elsewhere. Same reason all those trailers rotted in Arkansas while NO residents suffered.
    Just wish I could specify where to spend my tax dollars, as there are so many things these days that the government has done which I seriously object to.
