SAN ANTONIO (AP) San Antonio officials are telling a community of 13 families in an area trailer park that they shouldn't stay in their homes because of hazardous conditions following heavy flooding that left the area submerged in more than 4 feet of water over the weekend.

Officials have deemed the park too dangerous to live in because of badly damaged homes, a soaked electrical system, and an artesian well contaminated with E.coli and coliform.

The San Antonio Express-News reports that a letter issued to the residents at Big Tree Trailer City says they could be fined up to $2,000 per day if they don't leave by Friday morning, though officials said they don't plan to enforce that.

The city's developmental services spokeswoman, Ximena Copa-Wiggins, says their focus will be to work with residents.
