Flood Update

The Blog has received requests for information regarding the condition of the park, etc. in the aftermath of the June 20th flood. Yesterday, August 7th, Antonio Lopez, LP, Emergency Manager, City Of Weslaco, Office of Emergency Management, who is in addition the Fire Chief for the Weslaco Fire Department, spoke to residents during our regular Tuesday meeting. He did describe the steps that are being taken by the City of Weslaco to clean out the flood way that exits on the Northwest corner of Leisure World.

For those coming into Leisure World, there is little change in appearance. The flood covered a goodly share of the park on the North end all the way South to approximately midway between the park office and the entrance gate. Most of those homes were flooded and are in the process of being removed. Once they are gone it will look pretty empty in the Northwest sector. I will take a few pictures soon and post them for you to see. Homes on the Northeast corner (the Hill) of the park were spared as were homes along Sago Palm, Palm Way (the alley), and some on Palmetto Palm Drive.

At this point in time, the debris from inside the flooded homes has been picked up and it is only the mobiles that are no longer habitable and awaiting removal that remain.

All the residents of Leisure World that are dealing with the after effects of the June 20 flooding have been in our thoughts and prayers.  I don't want to add any additional work to the tasks you are already doing.  But I, and I am sure many other winter residents, would really appreciate a brief update on how things are going with the clean up and repair.  I know that some have relocated within the park and some have made the decision to give up their LW home.  Thanks for any news that you can give us.

Vena Louze

We wish we had better news to report at this time from Leisure World...

Yesterday, July 7th, there was a bad accident at the park.  Verna ACCIDENTLY was backed over by a car and was killed.

Verna had lost her trailer due to the flooding at the park.  Chris Ritenour carried Verna to her other home there in the park as the water was so high.  He also worked very hard helping so many people, including Verna to gather some of her belongings to her other trailer when the accident happened.  Marian Smith (Verna's sister) arrived at the park just a few days ago to help her sister out also when this happened.

Exactly one month ago, June 7th, Verna lost her long time friend Roger Gallea.

So sad to post this news.

Lloyd Walker

On Facebook Mary Gainer shared a photo (from Lloyd's daughter - Denise Cradeur Walker) of Lloyd Walker in his new home in LA.  I (Phyllis Connett) thought people might enjoy seeing where Lloyd is now living so decided to repost his new address.  Let's bombard Lloyd with some cards now and then so he won't forget his Leisure World friends.  Anyone with me???
