FLOOD VICTIM

Dallas, TX

IF anyone out there can help with information on who to contact about getting this problem fixed please contact me via this forum. It is August 5th and we are still making repairs to pur home. This situation does not end when the media forgets about it, it continues for all affected. 12 People in this area cannot get insured and have to deal with all costs out of pocket. I myself are grateful for the help some local churches and Red Cross provided, but this did not solve the problem. We will continue to flood and lose our homes, my consern goes especially to the elderly people that live on my street, which all they wan tis to live in their home till they die. This is not too much to ask. They have worked hard and deserve it. Please if anyon ehas information please contact me on this website.

I too want to express concern on flooding homes in Hereford in the area of San Jose. My parents live there and this year their home has been flooded twice in less than a month. I had heard that some individual remarked that it is the people's fault since they will not move. Well if these people could afford to move I am sure they would. I agree something has to be done so there people don't lose their homes. And after this is over we should continue to work on a solution and not just forget since all is back in order because it's only a matter of time before this happens again. The county should make an extra efford to ensure the water is routed before it overflows to the surrounding homes. We need to pull together and complain until something is done so people fixing there homes on the only property they own is lost again.
