EL PASO - Update: Tonight the flood victims will be holding a press conference to discuss what's being done to help them. It will be held tonight at 6 p.m. at 7067 Ramos Court.

News Channel 9 will be there and let you know what happens.

(Original Story)

The El Paso County Water Reclamation District says it still hasn't heard from its insurance company on whether they'll cover the flood damage in a lower valley neighborhood.

The Ramos Court neighborhood flooded after a worker tried to repair a gopher tunnel near the Franklin canal.

Most families lost everything, and are wondering who's going to pay for it all.

So far, an adjustor went out today to look at the damage, but they still haven't said what - if anything - they'll cover.

We asked city councilwoman Emma Acosta about the devastation in her district and what could be done to prevent this in the future, but, she declined to comment.

Well, first of all, lets get this story straight. An insurance adhuster has not gone out to this area. I know this because I am there every day helping my son and the other families that have lost it all. Second of all, if this so called councilwoman declined to comment, that really shows alot. The way it looks right now, is that the community is going to be on its own. I just love the way the water district just shoves this under the carpet. Very very horrible!
