GAINESVILLE, TX -- Six months after devastating floods hit the city of Gainesville, federal aid is on the way. A bill passed on Wednesday will provide the city with $3.64 million dollars for flood control at Pecan Creek.

US representative Michael Burgess testified before Congress, showing pictures of the destruction the flood waters left behind. The June 18th event damaged about 400 homes and businesses.

Three people were killed when their mobile home was swept away in the rising creek.

    does this mean that the ones of us it affected will get help to rebuild our homes or is it just for the city to set aside and do what they want when they want to. I understand that Pecan Creek needs to be fixed but what about the people like my family that lost everything and are still trying to rebuild our home and lives?
