NORTHERN CALIFORNIA - There are still dozens of Camp Fire survivors waiting for FEMA to come through with housing, and hundreds are still living in hotels.

FEMA says of the 1,900 people who qualify, they believe only about 1,300 will end up having to move into FEMA housing.

The agency says they have enough RV parks and group sites right to accommodate nearly all of them, but said 192 families are still living in hotels.

One survivor, Kai Musco, says he is still waiting for FEMA assistance.

"I'm frustrated because even with the services that we have and the money that we have, it's still not enough to get us by," he said. "I mean, I appreciate the help that everyone, organizations, individuals,I appreciate all of it, it's just difficult to have all that we have and still not be able to go very far."

FEMA said it has rented every available RV pad within 100 miles of Paradise for the use of Camp Fire survivors.
