Joseph Noble said it’s going to take at least a year before the home is livable, and he is waiting for money from FEMA.

“A lot of flooring has to be replaced — all the drywall three or four feet down has to be replaced with insulation,” Noble said.

Noble said the ductwork and insulation under the house as well as the air conditioning unit also needs replacing.t he is blessed to have a supportive family and friends to get him through the hard times.
