UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (KMOV) -- Crews have begun the demolition of parts of a University City neighborhood.
In 2008 two people died when the remnants of Hurricane Ike caused major flooding.
Homes along Wilson Avenue have been prone to flooding from the River Des Peres causing a reason for those structures to be demolished.
U. City bought 23 homes to tear down and is currently in negotiations with three more owners.
