Disabled veteran moves back into his home after flood
A disabled U.S. Army veteran and his family have been given to the green light to move back into their home in the Town of Bennington. Flash flooding displaced Dale D’Arconte and his family more than a week ago. Water damaged his Graff Road house so badly that it was condemned and deemed unlivable by Wyoming County. The foundation, hot/drinking water tanks and furnace were ruined along with personal valuables of the family. D’Arconte’s insurance company told him, he did not have flood insurance, even though they do not live in a flood zone. It’s estimated that repairs cost about $100,000. D’Arconte lives with his wife and 19-year-old autistic son.
