By Christian von Preysing You wouldn't know it today but last night's heavy rain brought what residents say were several feet of water into their neighborhood of La Ladrillera just north of Laredo Community College. For Enrique Rico Jr., it stopped him right in his tracks. “It started raining real hard last night so coming home right here on Coke and Pinder,” said Rico. “And that's where the flood was and my truck didn't make it no more. So i had to leave it here the remainder of the night.” He gave up on his truck until the next morning when he had it towed. He walked the rest of the way last night -- about three more blocks through some of this high water. “I would say about three, three and a half feet last night,” said Rico. Across the street neighbors had their own problems. Some say water came about a foot into their homes on the 1400 and 1500 blocks of Pinder Street. Nearby on East Anna Street: “It looked like a lake here,” said Robert Bondoc. Bondoc is a former construction worker. He thinks drainage for the block is not properly planned. “I would say about three feet or better [of water]. It took a while to drain. Because it's a little bitty drain pipe. It's 24 inches. And it took a while for that water to move on,” said Bondoc. Other times he says it's been more manageable. But this time he says the flooding is the worst he's ever seen. What do you do in this neighborhood when the heavy rains come? “I would suggest that people drive around this street. This street gets pretty flooded. It’s one of those streets. And the other one would be Lee street that gets pretty flooded. And Jefferson. But this street gets really flooded,” said Rico. Just avoid it all, if you don't live here. But following last night's flooding the ground is saturated and residents with homes here are looking at the weather for the rest of the week and hoping for the best forecast they can get.
