Flood-Damaged Trailers Cleaned Up

Nearly two dozen trailers have been removed from a mobile home park in the Town of Union.

They were all heavily damaged or destroyed in June's flooding.

This is what the Endwell Mobile Home Park looked like about a month ago.

This was before crews started removing the trailers.

There were 23 of them here.

Now, all but one of the homes have been cleared out.

Keith Clark lived in the park with his girlfriend and two kids.

They lost nearly everything when flood waters hit.

Now they live down the street, and Clark says he's happy to see the trailers taken away.

"It's kind of for the better I guess because it's kind of close to the river and it floods all the time. Now I just wish they'd put some sort of a flood wall there," Clark said.

Broome County hired a contractor to remove the trailers.

FEMA reimburses the county for the cost.
