After heavy rain Saturday, six units flooded and nine roofs leaked at Whitehall Terrace apartments, temporarily displacing residents from 15 of its 333 units.

Maintenance workers pumped water and removed carpeting from the apartments early Sunday, Whitehall Terrace manager Shannon Kleinman said. The units will dry for the rest of the day and be re-carpeted early this week. At least one resident temporarily moved into one of the complex’s three empty units. Other affected residents were given the option to move, but their apartments are not unlivable, Kleinman said.
