WESLACO – Some employees at a Weslaco gym were left out of work following the June floods.

Eddie Sada, co-owner of STX GYM, says 1,200 monthly members once walked through the building.

“At one time we had a great gym going, a great vibe, a lot of local members,” he says.  

Now, they’re not the only ones left dry after the floods.

“We had 15 employees that were working here, almost about full-time the majority of them,” says Sada.

He says most of them now have to find new jobs.

KRGV’s Taylor Winkel learned a new condensed version of STX GYM will be built behind the original property.

If the flood left you unemployed, you can apply for disaster unemployment assistance at any Workforce Solutions office in Cameron and Hidalgo counties.

Documentation including Social Security number, employment history, your most recent taxes and check stubs are required.
