Flood Update



Here's the latest numbers from the emergency flooding operations center on Avery. I'll be attending a press briefing there later today, so I'll report additional information at that time.

When the Mississippi River crests at 48 feet, which is expected to happen on Wednesday, May 11th, the following numbers of properties will be potentially be affected:

* 2,832 properties
* 706 single family residences
* 12 Apartment complexes-(432 units)
* 7 Schools
* 226 Businesses
* 322 Industrial sites

The 2,832 properties are not in addition to the 5,300 that was announced yesterday. It’s a new and lower total, according to county public affairs officer Steve Schular.
