Mark Folse from “The Wet Bank Guide”: sent me a photo of a house on the “FEMA list.”:

It seemed from the photo that the house was in pretty good shape. I have been back three times because I could not believe that this house was in need of demolition.

340 S. Clark Mid City

I looked around and although no one was there, it seems as if someone is doing some work on the house.

Looks good   Mid City

I looked around to see if any neighbors were there who may be able to tell me about the house, but it was pretty quiet.

I hope the listing was a mistake or possibly has been taken off the list.

Let’s hope
