ARLINGTON - Arlington may have found a way to help out hundreds of people left homeless by a storm and also take care of an eyesore for the city.

WFAA has learned that the city has a plan to buy out nearly 100 condominium owners who were flooded out last September from the remnants of Hurricane Hermine.

The homes were badly damaged from rising water from nearby Rush Creek.

The area was turned down for both federal and state recovery funds.

The condos are assessed at more than $3.5 million. City officials are not discussing how they would plan on paying for it.
