Mobile home residents in Mora Bay are back on their feet after Friday’s storm

Read Time:1 Minute, 45 Second

The Silver City West mobile home park is no longer under an evacuation alert. Moro Bay City officials say residents can begin returning to their homes, but are now cleaning up after the second flood.

“Very upset and devastated that this is the second time this has happened, exactly on the same day that was two months ago,” said resident Caroline Lewis.

The residents of the mobile home park have been recovering after January 9 for the past two monthsthousand a thunderstorm.

“We just cleaned everything up. We’re going to put a plinth on mobile and then the mud came in again,” Lewis said.

Now they are reliving the nightmare.

The roads that run through the Silver City West mobile home park have turned from asphalt to complete mud.

Piles of trash were also left behind.

Residents spent Saturday afternoon shoveling and washing away the dirt around their homes.

Lewis said she has lived in the mobile home park for more than 20 years and has never experienced anything like this before.

“It cost us about $20,000 to do everything we needed to do. Well, we’re back to square one,” added Lewis.

“Where I’m at now, it’s got to maybe eight inches. Last time it was up maybe 16. But the people along the creek were really hit hard,” said Paul Abrams, a Silver City West resident.

A news release from the City of Moreau Bay said Main Street will take about two to three days to clean up, after which the cleanup will move to Errol Street and Preston Lane.

The rubbish bins on Preston Lane are currently only available to local residents to dispose of flood damaged items. City staff will monitor these bins each day at noon.
