    The house that I lived in for almost 20 years was demolished without any notice to me at all.
    My best friend call me on a Sunday afternoon to tell me that she had driven on the street where I used to live and the spot where I used to live was now just an empty lot. The house was located at 5320 Wildair Dr. in the section of the city call Filmore Gardens. One block of Filmore, two blocks off of St. Anthony Ave. I was too hurt. At one time I had considered returning to my home city of over 40 years. But now, New Orleans is the place where I used to live. From here on out it will always be a nice place to visit, but I will never live there again. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still in hurricane terroity in Pensacola, Fl. But at least I’m above sea level and I’m on a hill. I thank God everyday for a new life. I just need to know if there is a class action suit anywhere because I (like a whole lot of other people) need to know where to sign up for it. If anyone reading this post knows, please get back to me asap. I do not want to be left out in the cold on this one. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    God Bless you! Please put a link so people can contribute ! I live in Shreveport, but I’d be glad to give $25.00 and will certainly email or write letters when another voice would help.

    Thank you for looking out for the city I love.
