Socorro, TX - Workers were out fixing Coker Road in Socorro after rain caused flooding, and mudslides that just destroyed the area.
"We were thinking this only happens in Juarez, but we have it here in El Paso too, and everything is damaged inside," Lorena Alcala said.
Alcala gave us a tour of her home. More than three inches of water has already dried out, but it left everything in her home damaged and outside her family's main car is undriveable.
"We're working for nothing."
Alcala says if her family decides to move they'll have to start all over. The same can probably be said for other neighbors, but at this point they may be forced out.
"You can see all these houses over there. These people are having to move out because of this, and government hasn't done anything to help us out yet," Ramon Esparza said.
