Rebuilding and toxic mold
I heard some woman interested in preserving the architecture and the "black culture" of the neighborhoods affected by the floods. She seemed to think that many of these homes could be rebuilt on the same site, without bulldozing the entire structure down. I am concerned that with the wood framed homes sitting in that toxic stew for weeks, isn't there a concern that toxic mold could develop unless the entire structure were torn down?
I've heard ugly cases of toxic mold situations in homes created by CLEAN water leaks, but when you add the muck to it, isn't it likely to be deadly?

It's going to be a mess, that is for certain.

Ya know, I've been thinking this since the beginning. Even those homes still standing, but having all that water...I just can't believe it wouldn't be an ongoing battle, between structural issues (rotting wood, etc.) to environmental/health - mold, etc. What a true mess. I'm sure many people would want to "save" their home, or feel it would be cheaper than bulldozing it down to the foundation...but I would think long-term, a lot would be better off just leveling it. Oh, but what a heartbreaker for many....

Espcially when Toxic mold can hide behind walls, and anywhere.
I did a case with Toxic mold, the entire house had to be demolished, if it is in one area it will be everywhere else, even if you can't see it.
Mold is so widespread that I can't even begin to "elobaorate" on insurance and health nightmares........
