MESA, AZ - The storm may be gone, but its effects can be seen, felt and heard in one east Mesa neighborhood.
"It's a mess, just a mess, I mean I lost everything, books, mementos and even appliances," said CJ Zollars while standing outside her home.
Zollars certainly isn't alone. Her home is one of several in a gated community near Recker and Main Roads in Mesa.
"I could not believe what I was seeing," said Jessica Rodriguez. "I looked out the window and the whole street looked like a river, the water was up against my front door and just cruising right into my home."
The storm hit the area Friday, but even over the weekend the damage felt overwhelming.
"I have no idea where to begin," said Zollars.
Zollars' story is a little unique compared to her neighbor's. The Apache Junction resident was in the process of moving into her new Mesa home when the flooding hit.
"Mostly everything I have is in there, in the garage all the boxes, all that that stuff is soaked, even parts of the walls have to be removed and I was in the process of painting and putting flooring down and I have no idea where to begin," said Zollars while standing next to a couple neighbors.
Zollars also said her car is damaged due to the waters and won't start.
Several feet away from Zollars' and the Rodriguez's homes, a large wall toppled over.
"The water was just too much for it, it wasn't that the water was rushing it was just creating such a huge pond in the area, I guess it couldn't hold up," said Zollars.
Several of the residents in the community said insurance company representatives were expected to be at their properties sometime Monday.
"No more rain, no more, for now at least, we have to figure out what to do, but hey, I'm moving forward one step at a time and just have to figure all this out," said Zollars.
