PRESIDIO - The City of Presidio is still in danger of major flooding, about ten to 15 homes in Presidio are completely flooded.

While the water has receded for the third day and the levees are still holding, officials remain concerned the levees could give way under all the pressure.

Right now, more prisoners are going to the city to help reinforce two miles of existing levees.

Officials say they are worried about the flooding, but now they are even more worried about mosquitoes and snakes, and they're in desperate need of more volunteers.

It's estimated that flooding will continue for about ten more days.
