WEATHER ALERT – FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES

The Flood Watch, which was declared yesterday by the National Weather Service, continues and is expected to remain in effect until Wednesday. The forecast calls for more rain throughout the day Tuesday and into Wednesday.

Ecorse Creek, along the city’s southern border, has overflowed its banks in a few of the lower-lying areas causing some localized street flooding. The city’s Public works crews are out this morning barricading streets that are experiencing flooding. If you live or work near one of these areas, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE AROUND THE BARRICADES AND ATTEMPT TO DRIVE THROUGH THE FLOOD WATERS!

If you have experienced street flooding in your neighborhood, keep children aware from these waters! It often contains hazardous bacteria and other contaminants that can cause illness.

Those whose homes and/or places of business are in low-lying or flood-prone areas need to take appropriate precautions – including (where possible) moving any expensive or irreplaceable items from the floors of lower elevations to higher, safer places to reduce the risk of water damage.

Also, if your home or place of business is near a storm drain grate on your street, please take a moment to clear away any debris that may impede the flow of water into the drain.

Updates will be provided throughout the course of the day on the city’s website, its Facebook page and through its Ping4Alerts (cell phone) notification service.
