Four Leon County families now have new homes after their old ones were damaged by Tropical Storm Fay in 2008. County officials handed over keys to the homeowners at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday.
Emily Gerrell was living here, at the Greenwood Park Mobile Home Estates in Southeast Tallahassee, in 2008 when Tropical Storm Fay hit.
“The water was gushing in the back door," she says.
The flood left black mold in the walls and carpet of her home. But today, she’s seeing her brand new home for the first time.
