Verde Circle residents in the Lower Valley of El Paso evacuated from their homes due to flooding caused by canal water that overflowed, an article of El Paso Proud reported on August 2.
According to resident Gustavo Garcia, nearly a foot of flood water entered his home through the back door. Garcia, who expressed his frustration about the incident, told reporters that he stepped into the water around 4:00 a.m. after he woke up. Garcia’s personal belongings, including appliances and some furniture, were destroyed by the flood. A manager of The El Paso County Water Improvement for District 1 said they will provide financial assistance to affected homeowners. Garcia is concerned that he will not be able to receive an insurance reimbursement because the flood was not a natural one. Red Cross is assisting local authorities in bringing help to affected families.
