Trion was one of the areas hardest hit by the floods of September 2009.  So far the town of Trion has received nearly $167,000 from FEMA for six projects, including repairs on several government buildings.

The town is wrangling paperwork so FEMA will buy the Park Avenue Apartments in Trion.  Mayor Johnny Ingle told reporters this past week that "money is slow coming in, but it’s beginning to come.”
