 (KMOV) -- Tenants were forced to evacuate their Normandy apartment complex after pipes burst sending water into the units.

Some of the tenants at the Hillcrest Apartment Complex tell News 4 they have not heard anything from their management company after they were left in the cold Tuesday morning.

“I don’t know what’s going on? If I’m going to be reimbursed? If I should start looking for an apartment elsewhere? I don’t know what to do!,” said Marishiah Creswell

The city of Normandy confirmed it condemned the building and said it will be a while before it’s back to normal.

“I spoke to management in reference to the displaced people, and they said they had several apartments there that they could you know, get ready to move into. But I explained to them that they would have to be inspected by the city as well,” said Randall Winston.

I’m paying $450 a month. I just paid my rent about a week ago, for an apartment I’m locked out of,” said Creswell.

The front office at Hillcrest referred News 4 crews to a Baumann Property Company in Ellisville. Calls to this company have not been returned.
