With more flooding possible, City asks residents and businesses to clear the storm drains in front of their property

As the City of Detroit prepares for the possibility of heavy rains and flooding this afternoon, it is asking for residents help to prevent flooding by clearing the storm drains in front of their home or business before the severe weather arrives. Simply removing accumulated twigs, leaves and trash from storm drain covers can go a long way to reduce or prevent street flooding.

Residents also are encouraged to make sure their down spouts are directed away from their houses to keep rain water from entering their basements.

Currently, the Mayor’s office, and departments of Homeland Security, Public Works, Police, Fire, Water and Sewerage and General Services are coordinating efforts to respond, as needed, to the effects of the weather. More information will be provided later in the day.
