Residents in Bronx apartment find no relief from flood-damaged building

Residents in a Holland Avenue apartment building are finding little relief from flooded conditions in the building.

Tenants say that Friday?s rains caused ceilings to leak in every apartment. They say water rushed down the steps like a waterfall. Tenants say the hallways and some apartment have puddles. Residents say the dampness has increased the problem of maggots and flies in the building.

One tenant says she has reached out to the health department and the borough president, but has gotten no answers because it is a weekend. Residents say when the superintendent of the building found out about the problems, he fled the neighborhood.
