    A mobile home manufacturer's Virginia facility is building temporary housing for some displaced victims of Superstorm Sandy.

    Factory Expo Homes in Rocky Mount has completed the first mobile home that will be transported to the grounds of Faith Church in New Milford and it is scheduled to be shipped starting Tuesday.

    Starting on Dec. 23, the local church will welcome displaced families from Staten Island, New York, where a month ago waist-deep water piled through streets during the storm. The church also is offering the new residents free food each week along with access to its campus school.

    The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is buying the homes. The New York-based foundation honors the memory of Staten Island firefighter Stephen Siller, who was killed in the 2001 terrorist attacks.
