Even though strict guidelines must be followed, several home owners in Tulsa County flood areas are unhappy with assessments by inspectors. They are appealing, and County Floodplain Administrator Teresa Tosh says it’s their right to do so, and they should if they feel a mistake has been made. But she emphasizes there are guidelines from FEMA and the county that must be followed in assessing damaged homes.                                      

Tosh says the homes of most concern are those in the 100-year floodplain which are considered ‘substantially damaged’.
