SeaTac, Wash. — Heavy rains Thursday evening damaged 13 units and displaced as many as 50 people at a SeaTac apartment building.

The apartment building in the 16000 block of Military Road was undergoing a roof replacement when heavy rains washed through the area around 5:30 p.m. Thursday. The roof was covered in plastic sheeting, but the water managed to get under the cover, damaging the attic, and some units in the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building.

At least 13 apartments suffered “significant” damage, and the apartments will need renovation.

No one was injured in the SeaTac rains. The American Red Cross is helping the displaced families.
