High Water Levels Affect Roads and Homes

The St. Clair County Emergency Operation Center continues to be partially activated and local officials are monitoring the elevated water levels.  Levels continue to rise in southern portions of St. Clair County and are starting to impact roads and homes. The St. Clair County Road Commission has posted temporary road restrictions due to the water levels as it relates to roads in Clay Township and Harsens Island.  This is a dynamic situation that is dependent on rainfall amounts, changes in wind direction, and wave action. These variables, combined with higher than normal water levels can impact roadways, homes, and businesses. Residents needing sandbags can contact their local township or city office.  If your home is impacted by flood damage it is very important that you contact the Emergency Operation Center at 810-989-6392.
