Congressman Griffin Proposes Empty Exxon Homes in Mayflower for Tornado Victims

MAYFLOWER, AR -- Scores of families across Mayflower have no home tonight as a result of the tornado, and one local congressman says he has a perfect place for them to live -- homes left empty after last year's oil spill.

"I think it's a great idea," said Emily McElroy whose parents live in the River Plantation neighborhood in Mayflower. "I think people need houses and there's empty houses here in town"

McElroy's home only received minor damage, but others here were completely destroyed and residents face the prospect of starting over.  MORE
