Storms cause flooding at Blacksburg apartment complex

Posted: Updated:

Heavy downpours hit much of Southwest Virginia Wednesday- and flooded parts of an apartment complex in Blacksburg, leaving some residents with a massive clean-up.

Tenants at the Tech Terrace say it only took a matter of minutes before the rain flooded the parking lot, one car, and a number of downstairs apartments.

"Torrential downpour, and before you knew it, the downstairs apartment, water had started seeping into our apartment," said resident William Long.

Despite the flooding, the tenants say the leasing agency was quick to respond - laying down sandbags to prevent further flooding, and helping residents clear the water out of their homes.
