Cape Cod Times: Coast Guard servicemen and women have been living in FEMA-provided trailers since a nor’ester battered the island and Station Brant Point in January.

The storm caused $150,000 in damage, as flooding knocked out heat and running water in the quarters where they stay while on duty at the station, located near the end of Easton Street a few hundred yards from Brant Point Lighthouse.
