A group of seniors files a lawsuit to remain in their homes, despite the building’s damage from Hurricane Harvey.
Residents of a high rise at 2100 Memorial are suing the Houston Housing Authority, which originally evicted everyone because of storm damage. The deadline to vacate was today, giving residents only a few days to find a new place to live. Many of them don’t have the resources or the ability to relocate from the affordable housing location.
Even after the Authority offered to help with expenses, only about 50 seniors have found new accommodations.
The first floor sustained physical damage, but HHA officials say the fire alarm, elevators, and water system also had problems following the storm.
