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.
