Housing Authority works to relocate flood victims

(07/14/10) BROOKLYN - The New York City Housing Authority is working to temporarily relocate residents whose apartments were flooded by the severe rains in Brooklyn yesterday.

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.

NYCHA is looking to place residents in Unity Plaza or other developments.
