Throgs Neck NYCHA apartments flood after rain

Tenants of a city Housing Authority building in Throgs Neck are cleaning up after Saturday's rainy weather brought flooding into their apartments.



Residents on Dewey Avenue say they have been dealing with water issues for several years now. They say the rooftop drains fill up every time it rains.



Tenants say the issue had been remedied in the past, but the fixes were not enough.



News 12 has reached out to NYCHA regarding the flooding, but is still waiting on a response.
