The last home on the north side on North Terrace and North Road is starting to be knocked down. Crews started destroying the garage about an hour ago.

This will pave the way for future flood protection. The process to acquire all the homes in the area started after the 1997 flood. Three others have already been demolished.

“And that's going to complete the whole area from Oak Grove campus all the way down to the park on the north side and that's wonderful news so that's great to hear.”

The actual house will be destroyed later this spring.
