REPORTING MIDLAND FLOOD DAMAGE:

Good evening Midland. If you are a homeowner, business or non-profit organization that has sustained any damage or loss as a result of the flood, please complete a report at https://arcg.is/1H00aG.

The Midland Damage Assessment app was developed for people to self-report damage to their property. The app has several questions to help the Midland Damage Assessment team determine the extent of damage in our community.

Once you click the link, you will be directed to a map. Enter the address and search for the damaged property. The app will zoom to the property if it is found and a pop-up box will appear. Link to the online form to report flood damage. It should not take more than 5-10 minutes to complete and submit the information.

If you do not have access to the internet, please contact 2-1-1 by dialing 2-1-1 or if you are not in the area, 989-835-2211 and they will assist you in completing the form.

 

Some important information for Future Flooding Preparedness:

Due to recent dam failures the path, flow, rise and forecasting of the Tittabawassee River have changed along with the ability to accurately predict when specific areas will flood.

Midland County Emergency Management in coordination with the Army Corps of Engineers and the National Weather Service are advising residents that live in the areas impacted by river flooding to expect and prepare for the river to rise and crest faster than it has in previous flooding events.

Because of the limited predictability in the forecasting of river levels, it will be important to monitor the weather forecasts and get public safety alerts during rain, storm and flooding events.

It's important to note that the hydro graph predictions may not reflect actual experiences moving forward. Midland County Emergency Management and the National Weather Service will continue to monitor the river during weather events so that future adjustments can be made to predictions and forecasts as they learn the new behavior of the river in our area.
