Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - After a long, uncertain year of waiting, finally some good news for a Barnes County family.

FEMA approved a buyout for Jan Bury and her husband, John. The pair lived in a home on Lake Ashtabula.

Spring of last year, the land around their home started shifting, dropping up to 10 feet in some spots. FEMA told the family, within the next few months, it'll determine how much their home was worth before the landslides, then cut a check.

They're moving to a home near Rogers, just a few miles from their old place. Theirs was one of two properties approved for this issue.
