Oakland homes along the Ramapo River to get flood buyouts with $2 million in new funding
Owners of flood-prone Oakland homes won't have to worry about the problem anymore.
The town has received $2 million to buy out six homes along the Ramapo River.
The homes flood frequently during heavy rainstorms and had to be gutted after Hurricane Irene. Homeowners say the buyouts are welcome news because there was no way they'd be able to sell them.
