MCALLEN – The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved funding of more than $2 million for the City of McAllen to improve the drainage systems.

The funds will go to the ‘Westway Heights Drainage Project’ to help a neighborhood prone to major flooding.

“It's actually one of the worst drainage problems that we got,” says City Manager Roy Rodriguez.

KRGV’s Sierra Pizarro spoke with a resident who lives in the neighborhood and believes this project will make a dramatic impact.
