Flooding Continues to Impact Area

Todd PittengerMay 24, 2019

Flooding continues to impact much of the area. With multiple creeks and rivers flowing at or above flood stage, multiple roads in Saline and neighboring counties remain closed.

Power is still out to a portion of the Saline County community of New Cambria.

In Solomon, the flood water made it up Main Street where locals continue to sandbag  to protect their buildings.

Volunteers that wish to help are asked to report to the sand pile at the Solomon Maintenance shop on South Poplar Street.

Chapman completed bagging 4th and Marshall Streets, in anticipation of water reaching that area. The City office has begun taking steps to evacuate and move their operations to the municipal golf Course building on Indian Hill. The water currently is close to or around the trailers homes on East 6th Street. The residents of those homes are encouraged to evacuate while they can as the water rises.

Officials urge to not drive into water.  It is unlawful to drive around a barricade or road closed sign, and hazardous to drive into water. You have no way of knowing if the road is washed out under the water or not. Abide by the signs. Turn around, don’t drown.
