Looking at these piles of dirt day after day -

But after months of this noise -

and this dust -

he's no longer laughing.

Victor Rayneri

Cape Coral

48:48 48:52

you move here thinking this was a residential site not an industrial sitEe

His home on Southwest 17th avenue is in the thick of Cape Coral's Utilities Expansion Project --

replacing wells and septic systems with new city water and sewer lines

As contractors chose the space for their staging areas --

one picked a lot right in front of Rayneri's house --

another chose the space directly behind.

Rayneri

7:01 7:06

in front, in the back, the noise and it just keeps on going its been months

He and his neighbors went to City council -

saying its no longer just annoying -

it's threatening their health.

58:03 58:10

bottom line i live in constant pain with headaches, irritated throat, my chest feels like it has a 300 lb weight sitting on it:10

The contractor put up this fence late last week -

and the city says they will be doing air quality testing in the area.

But until construction is over --

those staging areas will likely stay exactly where they are.

It could be another 9 months.

Paul Paul Clinghan

Utilities Extension Manager

58:29 58:38

the further they are from the project site the more cost of the project and then thats passed on to the assessment and the homeowners

But these homeowners -- don't know how much more they can take

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

AFTERNOON STORMS CONTINUE

Tropical moisture continues to stream over south Florida and will provide more fuel for afternoon storms on Wednesday. Today's thunderstorm pattern was very active and wet with plenty of lightning, and tomorrow will likely be very similar. Most of the heavy rain and storms are ending at the time of this forecast update and there will only be a few more showers to track later this evening. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight and break to mostly sunny by morning with a low temperature in the mid 70's.

Humidity will continue to be high on Wednesday and our daytime high will top out around 90 degrees. Afternoon storms will begin to fire up around lunch time tomorrow and you can expect some areas to be hit with heavy rain and frequent lightning.

Tropical Depression 2 is still moving on a westerly course toward the Windward Islands of the Caribbean and it is not expected to get stronger over the next several days. Return to index of stories...
