Waverly talks flood buyouts

WAVERLY (KWWL) -- The water has gone down but many eastern Iowans still don't know what will happen to their home.

In Waverly Tuesday night, officials held an informational meeting on potential buyouts of flood damaged homes. City and county leaders hoped to answer some questions. But the city -- like homeowners -- is waiting to see how much money it will get to buyout homes from the federal government.

"I guess if I don't get bought out, then I continue fixing it up and hopefully the next flood is way down the road," said flood vicitm Al Nolte.

The city also posted a priority list of Waverly homes to get bought out.
