Flooding in Floodwood Damages Homes and Buildings?
The City of Floodwood’s Facebook page published flood watch information from the National Weather Service in April when a Flood Watch was issued for the Mississippi River at Aitkin.
Our local Aitkin, Carlton, and West St. Louis Counties respond to flooding and storm damage emergencies every year and offer this flood information and flood safety tips from the National Weather Service:
Extensive inundation of structures and roads. Significant evacuations of people and or transfer of property to higher elevations.
Some inundation of structures and roads near the stream. Some evacuations of people and or transfer of property to higher elevations.
Minimal or no property damage, but possibly some public threat (e.g., inundation of roads).
River Flood and Flash Flood Safety Rules
During periods of heavy rains, stay away from flood-prone areas such as stream beds, drainage ditches, and culverts.
Move to higher ground if flooding threatens your area.
If you live or work in flood-prone areas, remain alert during periods of heavy rain.
Be especially cautious at night as it is harder to recognize flood dangers.
Never drive your car into any water of unknown depth. Remember: Turn Around Don’t Drown!
If your vehicle stalls, abandon it immediately and seek higher ground.
