Residents of an Equity Lifestyle Properties retirement neighborhood are furious over flooding. Whenever it rains, they’re left with thousands of dollars worth of repairs – and the answers to their water woes are out of their control.

When most people were praying for rain, residents of the Tropical Palms community were doing the exact opposite.

“I dread it when it rains like that. I just dread it,” said resident Donna Spafford.

“Every time it rains I am stressed out because if it rains too hard we’re going to have to try to pump out water from our lanai, it’s under our home. It smells,” said Spafford.

“We have mosquito problems. We’ve had moccasin problems because the water just runs like a river down the street,” said Linda Taylor.

Residents say that rain water is supposed to go to a retention pond with the help of a pumping system.

“Our retention pond is so full, if it rains tomorrow it could not take another drop,” said Taylor.

Residents say they’ve contacted the owners of the mobile home park. They even signed a petition last year, but got nowhere.
