Tameka Brown claims she and her children have suffered health problems as a result of mold and flooding in her New York City Housing Authority apartment.

SOUNDVIEW - One Soundview mother of four says she's been dealing with flooding and mold in her New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) apartment for months.

Tameka Brown says flooding and mold have been a problem in her apartment at the Sonia Sotomayor Houses ever since she moved there in January of 2012. She says she's gone through all of the proper channels to have the issue taken care of by maintenance workers, but the problem still exists.

Brown and her children claim they've suffered health problems as a result of the maintenance issues, but the NYCHA is disputing whether or not there has ever been mold in the apartment.

Brown says she's considering a lawsuit and hoping for a transfer to a different apartment.
