Officials say several apartments on Blake Avenue were damaged by driving rains, destroying property and even injuring some of the residents. One family reportedly needed to take its child to the emergency room after she slipped and fell from water on the floor. The apartments took in water from holes in their roof, which is presently being replaced.
