Mobile home parks struggling to come back
Gaps in government and private response caused delays

The story of the parks is important because the wholesale destruction has revealed gaps in the public and private response to disasters in mobile home parks, according to interviews with owners and state and local officials and public records. Most owners had vastly inadequate insurance and might not be able to cover the costs of repairs. Confusion about jurisdiction over the parks — including among government officials themselves — has led to delays and frustrations. The California Department of Housing and Community Development, not the town or the county, oversees mobile home parks.
