Lynchburg & Central Virginia News

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) – Residents who were flooded out of their homes at the Piedmont Flour Loft Apartments in Lynchburg two weeks ago will get another week of their hotel stay paid for.

The owner of the building says the residents will have their hotel stay covered.

Originally, residents were told that the hotel stays would only be covered through the end of this week.

There is still no word on when, or if, those displaced residents would be allowed to move back in.

The City of Lynchburg and the building’s owner are still trying to determine who is liable and what action to take.

Earlier this month, the building was flooded out after water unexpectedly entered the building.
