PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Areas of south Phoenix are flooding again while residents are still struggling to clean up from last week's storms. Most of the damage hit in neighborhoods near South Mountain.
A meeting for residents with the city, county and SRP was held on Monday night.

But from what we're hearing, not much actually came out of it.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, Councilwoman Kate Gallego, Phoenix City Manager Ed Zuercher and other staff will take a first-hand look at the damage in the area.
In the video from last week, roads were seen covered in water, more than a dozen cars were trapped and 16 people had to be rescued.

Plus, homes all over the area were flooded.

Heavy rain brought more flooding to a canal in the area again on Tuesday. Residents worry their homes will be flooded again this time around.

The area is not considered a flood hazard, so not only were residents caught off guard, but many of the homeowners do not have flood insurance.

There many not be much that the city or state can do to help.

Not enough damage was done to qualify the area as a disaster zone, so residents do not qualify for state or federal emergency funds.

Residents are hoping that when city leaders look at the area on Tuesday morning they'll have some answers.

Dozens of homeowners may have a big bill to pay when all is said and done.
