The Bufords turned to their insurance companies for help while living in a rent home in Midwest City. The couple had home insurance through North Star Mutual Insurance and flood insurance with Farmers Insurance.
But Rhonda Buford said both companies denied the claims because their property was destroyed by erosion.
The Bufords said they were hiring a lawyer to continue their fight, but in the meantime they plan on moving on with their lives.
“We had planned on retiring in two years but now that's probably not going to happen,” Rhonda Buford said. “We are thankful for the lives we have, we both work and we are both healthy.
“This is real hard to watch. This was going to be our home, this was going to be our forever home.”
