Flood Monitoring For South End Of The County

WGRT talked with St. Clair County Administrator Controller Karry Hepting this week and she mentioned that the emergency operation center has been partially active in the Emergency Management Office, monitoring the water levels and the flooding.  Hepting says they are  advising residents to start to prepare to protect their property and their areas, and have sandbags available as the water is expected to continue to rise through June and July.  She says water levels could potentially reach our historic highs.  Hepting says Clay and Ira township residents should contact their local unit of governments who should have the sandbags, and she says the best thing residents can do is sign up for the WINS alert, which you can find at the WGRT website, and information can be received through phone calls, texts or emails to keep you up to date on emergency issues in your specific area.
