Flooding report from City Commissioner Kathleen Belanger

As you may know by now, we are experiencing serious flooding issues throughout the city and county.  Even though the rain has stopped, there are numerous challenges, including road closures and cautions:

MLK between S University and Fredonia,

South Pecan,

Pearl Street from Main to Starr,

South Pillar road damage (report of road caved in),

High water reported on North University at Maroney

Starr Avenue near the SFA Intramural Fields

South Church Street

Press Road

East Main at Lanana Creek

Some homes have become inaccessible due to flooding, and there are some structures that have been damaged.

Numerous traffic lights are not working or blinking.

The staff and emergency crews are extremely busy working for our safety so please do your part to aid cleanup and safety efforts by postponing non-essential travel today and staying off the roads as much as possible.  I have also been told that even without more rainfall there is a possibility that our creeks will still rise and there may be more flooding.

Please stay safe and check on your neighbors.

Blessings,

Kathleen Belanger

City Commissioner
