The Wednesday after the flood, I covered two very different aspects of the recovery process.
First, a home inspector checking foundations and other potential dangers. Every basement was dark, the floors covered with a thick sludge. From these inspections came a list of 40 homes and businesses that will be demolished beginning this week. I've started a new portrait project on the families that lived in the homes to be demolished, but more on that later.
Nearly every house was swarming with family, friends and coworkers salvaging what they could and throwing everything else away. Shelby laughed and wrinkled her nose after pulling a once-clean diaper out of a china cabinet.
