Flooding Victims

TWO MONTHS AFTER the flood, that destroyed your home and everything you own, you can now get a loan! 

Read all about it in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The Sept. 8 storm hit west Arlington particularly hard. At least 129 homes and 68 units at the Willows at Shady Valley condominiums were inundated.

"A lot of people are going to have to borrow money to make ends meet, particularly since a lot of money they have spent has gone into temporary housing," said Barry, a spokesman for the dozens of flood victims on Southpark, Woodland Park Boulevard, Woodridge, Valleycrest and Creekside drives.

"They have had to pay for hotels, motels. Certainly they are going to need money."

In Sansom Park, City Hall was condemned because most of the building was flooded with about 8 inches of water, affecting all but two offices. The heavy rain brought by Hermine overwhelmed the drainage system.
