   Dozens of St. Charles residents are homeless after their apartments flooded during Monday night's heavy rainfall.  

   Residents at the Riverview Lane Apartments spent Tuesday cleaning up and trying to salvage what they could.  But single mom Jamie Roa told Fox 2 News that losing most of her possessions isn't the hardest part of her ordeal.  It's not having a home for her two daughters.

   "My kids are crying to me, 'Mommy, I want to come home.  Please come get me.  Please come get me.'  And I can't go and get them," she said.  "Because I don't have a home to bring them home to."

   This isn't the first time the apartments have flooded. Recently, property owner, Sheila Stumps installed new storm drains to take rain run off water away from the building, but she and residents told Fox 2 News that the city sewers keep backing up.

   To make matters worse, some residents say they've been denied flood insurance because their building sits on a flood plain.  Other residents say there's nothing in their leases to indicate the risk of flooding.

   Stump insists that she informs everyone of the risk verbally.

   Stumps says she’ll get the tenants back into their homes as soon as possible, but admits that it will take time.
