Residents Still Dealing with Flood Damage A Year Later
SAN PERLITA- Residents are still dealing with flood damage after a storm last March.
Residents living in the area say they will never forget that storm. Most of the town was drenched in 4 to 6 inches of water. Cristina Reyes' home was right in the middle of the storm.
"It was really hard to even go get groceries or anything. I had to like swim my way to go to town," said Reyes.
Since then Reyes has had to make numerous repairs to her home.
"The roof was leaking really badly. We had to change the sheet rock from the ceiling and then the mold. We got that fixed," Reyes said.
Reyes' says they are still finding issues specifically with her pipes underground. Reyes says she thought they had finally put the flood disaster behind them now she learns that isn't the case. While it may take a while to fully repair her home she worries more damage may rise in the future.
