Help could be on the way for dozens of families who lost their homes in last week's flash flooding in northern Virginia.

FEMA is scheduled to arrive in some of the hardest hit areas of Prince William County on Thursday to assess the damage.

About 100 houses at the Holly Acres Mobile Home Park off Route 1 were condemned after last week’s storms. 

Thirty-eight families from the mobile home park have been staying at a community-run recreation center, but that shelter is set to close on Friday.

It’s not clear yet if they the residents will qualify for federal disaster relief.
