Cleanup still ongoing in Texas after deadly flooding in 2015

Some Central Texas residents impacted by last year’s flooding are still in the recovery process, an article of My San Antonio reported on July 12. The flooding last year killed 14 people in all and caused damages to thousands of homes, some of which were completely destroyed.

Some of the families who had their homes severely damaged in the May 2015 flood reportedly could not file a complaint against contractors because they lost the documentation to do so in the flood. The Selgado family, who live near the Blanco River, is one of the many families seriously affected by the flood. Their house still has traces from the damages even after being repaired. There were also reports of some people who lost their homes and remained homeless for several months after the flood. An estimated 2,700 persons in different parts of Central Texas filed complaints with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Emergencies such as flooding can cause serious damage to homes, leaving many families struggling to find a new place to stay.
