COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Residents at Liberty Garden Townhomes may be going into the New Year without water, and some homes are even flooded.

Fire officials arrived at the townhomes to find out the cause of the flooding before leaving the scene.

A lot of residents were worried if the problem will by the end of the weekend.

Some residents say that they were looking to cook food and spend time with loved ones at their homes for the holiday, and will now be unable to do that.

Others say that they will now have to leave their apartment until something is done.

"Disappointed. Everybody needs water. Can't live without water. So, I'm going to have to leave my apartment and go stay with my sister or something because I can't live there without no water," said Retha Johnson.

A plumber, who came to the townhomes, told residents that they may not have running water in some parts of their home until Tuesday. It's something that raises a lot of concerns for the residents.

"The way people get flooded out and then you can't reach out to people and understand what's going on. Me, myself, I just want to move out. I swear, I just want to get out of here," says Winifred Bethune, a resident of Liberty Garden.

New Leader 9 reached out to fire officials for more information on the cause of the water being out and the flooding but did not get an answer. Management at Liberty Gardens Townhomes is out of the office for the weekend.

We will have more information as the story develops.
