SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Seniors living at The Tower apartment building in downtown San Diego received notices Wednesday informing them of upcoming repairs which will require them to leave their units for hours a day for five days. 

According to the letter, repairs to the balconies on the 14 story building will begin Monday, one floor at a time. It also says occupants will have to vacate their apartments from 7 a.m. till 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for safety reasons. 

Resident Carol Clark told 10 News she and others are worried about how the seniors who live there will be able to get around, where they will go and what they'll eat during those hours. 

The notice did not provide information about possible compensation or alternative arrangements for those affected. 

Management has scheduled meetings for residents to ask questions and voice concerns. Those sessions are set for Thursday morning and evening.
