Potential Flooding as Snow Melts


With temperatures warming up after record-breaking cold over the past few days, snowmelt and rain can lead to flooding in our region.

Frozen ground is unable to absorb water and snow and run-off immediately flows to the storm sewers. Ice can block storm drains and may create street flooding.

If you see street flooding please contact City Hall or the non-emergency police number after hours.

Homeowners should check their sump-pumps to make sure they are in good, working condition.
