STORM FLOODS SEATAC APARTMENT
Displaces 50 People
Thirteen apartment units were damaged and 50 people were displaced from their apartments as a result of the heavy rain storm which struck late in the afternoon on Thursday. The apartment building located in the 16000 block of Military Road in the City of SeaTac was undergoing a roof replacement when the storm began. Though the roof was covered in plastic sheeting, the heavy rains managed to get under the sheeting allowing water into the attic as well as the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building. A City of SeaTac fire engine responded to the flooding call and found significant damage to 13 apartment units making those apartment units unsafe displacing theS families.
The displaced families are being assisted with housing by the apartment management and American Red Cross. There were no reports of injuries to any of the residents.
