​​​​HARRIS COUNTY – More than 200 homeowners who have flooded repeatedly will be getting bought out.​

County Commissioners approved $20 million for the effort.

Harris County Ju​dge Ed Emmett says the buy-outs will happen all over the county, though many will be in the northern part.

The judge and commissioners wanted to get to these homeowners as soon as possible before they started to rebuild.

County engineer John Blount says they'll use an independent appraiser assuming pre-flood conditions, subtract the insurance payout and offer whatever's left over.
