Tenants seek answers about flood damage in Breckenridge Hills

BRECKENRIDGE HILLS, Mo. — More than a dozen families in Breckenridge Hills fear their homes will be destroyed.

Residents at an apartment complex said mold was growing everywhere, the air conditioning wasn’t working and some residents were paying rent, although they said the apartments were uninhabitable.

“It’s hot. It’s not worth staying there. You can smell the sewage under the basement because it’s seeping out from under the vents,” said Cynthia Shahjamaluddin.

Local residents said many problems emerged weeks after historic flooding in late July. As the water receded, it left damage and runoff.

“We will have to move out because the place is left to decay. There’s too much mold and they haven’t been out here yet. Every time we ask about air conditioning or if someone comes out and clears the tide, they don’t answer,” said Lisa Monroe.

Monroe said they tried calling property management dozens of times but got no response. Every day that goes by brings new problems.

“I feel like we’re all adjusting to being homeless because of what’s going on and if we say something, we’re going to end up there. That scares me. I’m not thinking about myself, I’m thinking about these sick people here who need it more than I do,” Shahjamaluddin said.

The families said they didn’t know where to go if the homes were ransacked.

“If it’s sentenced we have a certain number of days that we have to get out and then we’re just out and we’ve already paid them for that month. She should be doing something you know to help that area and not leave us all with mold that you can smell in the house,” Monroe said.

FOX 2 has contacted the owner of the apartments and is awaiting a response.
