FEMA Weather Shelter Dome Near Completion
A new FEMA weather shelter is nearing completion in Brownsville in anticipation of next year’s hurricane season. The dome will have an 800-person capacity in the event of dangerous weather conditions. Brownsville officials say the project was made possible thanks to FEMA which covered 75% of the project costs.
The dome is located at the Brownsville Sports Park North of the city. The total cost is estimated at $5 million.
