BETHALTO (KMOV.com) -

Soaked carpet, mold on walls and water leaking through ceilings is what forced Porchia and Chris Davis to move out.

"We were pouring out buckets of water trying to salvage our belongings," said Porchia Davis.

This constant flooding of their home went on for three weeks.

The couple told News 4 a storm damaged part of the roof at the Metro Apartments in Bethalto. They say the damage was never repaired and that damage caused their ceilings to collapse.

"They came looked at the place saw there was water in the bucket and still didn't do anything about it," said Chris David.

News 4 reached out to the complex for an explanation. The property manager hasn’t returned calls. Our cameras did spot roofing materials on the property.

The couple says the complex started roof repairs for other buildings on the property but they were told the complex is looking for a separate contractor to make fixes to their building.

It’s a process they said they couldn’t wait weeks for.

“We are just trying to make it day by day," said Davis.
