Leaky Roof at Selma Apartment Complex Raises Health Concerns
From the West Alabama Newsroom–
A Selma woman says the living conditions in her apartment — has her concerned about the health and safety of her family.
Tarps are on the roof of the building where Kelly Carter lives — in the Woodrow East Subdivision Apartments.
She says the roof needs to be fixed. Because when it rains — it pours — right into her apartment.
“Who wanna deal with that all the time? Who wanna continue to go through that. I mean, I don’t. I mean, I’m really just sick and tired of it.”
Carter says she’s been dealing with the situation — since Hurricane Zeta tore through the area — back in November.
She says it’s a problem that’s been allowed to linger on — for far too long.
However, Carter says her biggest concern — is for the health and safety — of her and her two children.
“It’s mold built up, mildew. It can cause issues with your respiratory system. I don’t want it to affect my health,” Carter said.
“My daughter has asthma. My son, he’s been sick. I had to take him to the doctor. It’s not healthy.”
Carter says she’s been a tenant at the Woodrow East Subdivision Apartments — for 10 years.
Alabama News Network reached out to the CEO of the Woodrow East property — but he declined the opportunity to talk with us on camera.
