A Barnes County couple says they're finally been given the buyout they've been waiting for. We brought you the story of John and Jan Bury last month. They've just been OK'd to apply for assistance from FEMA. Their home is being pushed around by huge landslides, 10 feet deep in some spots. John says it's going to be a long wait for aid to come, but he's excited they finally can feel some relief.

John Bury – Awarded Buyout: "I figured we were pretty well done for as far as getting help from FEMA. But when Kim said would you still be interested in a buyout... HECK YEAH! "

Bury says their sewer pipes have broke because of the landslides, and it now seeps into their front yard.
