Apartments evacuated due to flooding

MASON CITY, Iowa – It’s a scary situation for those living at Autumn Park Apartments as water levels are rising.  The dam that runs behind the building is overflowing.  Brandon Wilson, an Autumn Park Apartments Spokesperson says they’re worried about the water levels because of the flooding back in 2008..

“We wanted to make sure they could find a place to go because a lot of them can’t move very quickly., ” said Wilson. “So they just wanted to get them out of the apartments as quickly as possible.”

Folks were evacuated around 11a.m. Thursday morning. Residents living there are taking shelter with family, friends, and local churches. Wilson says he’s hoping residents can return in the next few days, weather permitting.
