VICKSBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Residents of the Pecan Ridge Apartments say erosion is quickly encroaching on their building.

The problem surfaced months ago, and continued to get larger.

"My concern now is where you see the parking lot is already gone, you know that it's further," Julie Thompson said. "People park their cars there. The building is on top of it. It's just worrisome."

The erosion is just a few feet from one of the apartments and it's already swallowed up part of a parking lot. Tenants are concerned for children in the area, pets and their vehicles, even though the complex put up a small fence for safety concerns.

"I think that considering the danger that's being posed to the residents in those buildings that are nearest and there's no other vacancies for three bedroom apartments, I think the apartment complex should 100 percent pay to relocate these people," Thompson added.

Apartment managers declined to comment on the erosion, but residents are hoping they address the problem sooner rather than later.
