Several homes on Tally Ho Rd. in Arroyo Grande were flooded during the recent storms.

Many of the homes have been red-tagged by the city, forcing residents to move out until repairs can be done.

Several feet of water caused some electrical and structural damage to the homes.

“The refrigerator was floating in the house; the mattresses were floating in my house. The entire house,” said Vanessa Rozo.

Those displaced are being helped by the Red Cross and the 5Cities Homeless Coalition.

City officials say several of the homeowners have already begun the permitting process to start repairs.
