Tenants at a local apartment are upset. Their kitchens are covered in rainwater and they don't know where to turn.

The flooding is happening at the Mountain Ridge Apartments near Circle and Verde Drive in Colorado Springs.

Standing water covers Sabrina and Jesse Jones' living room carpet.

"This isn't something you can live in. I'm just so upset about it,” Sabrina Jones explained.

The Jones say steady rain over the weekend caused their ground level apartment to flood. They are not alone; there is a shared sense of frustration down the hall.

"It's soggy, it's mold, it's mildew,” a visibly exasperated resident said.

"Everybody on the bottom floor is dealing with this, and it's hard," another resident told 11 News.

11 News spoke to 10 residents living on the bottom level of the complex, all who reported dealing with soggy carpets. The tenants are asking questions, but so far they don't have many answers.

"'We'll get maintenance out there tomorrow,' is all they're saying,” Sabrina Jones said.

In the mean time the Jones family is trying to do the best they can with what they have.

"I just want to cry," Sabrina told 11 News.

Some of the tenants say maintenance did come out on Sunday to drop off some fans to help try to dry things out.

11 News has a call into the office to see what will happen next. We’ll let you know when they get back to us.
