Rain and flooding update

 

Green Bay, WI, December 14, 2015—-The Green Bay Metro Fire Department responded to one call for flooding at a residence this morning and saw many flooded streets in the City of Green Bay and the Village of Allouez.  Allouez reported several basements that were flooded. 

With the ground being saturated at this point and rain predicted for this Wednesday, we are urging residents to make sure that their sump pumps are in working order and functioning properly.  We would also recommend finding alternate routes if roadways are flooded today or on Wednesday.

The Green Bay Metro Fire Department is working closely with Brown County Emergency Management and the Public Works Departments of Green Bay and Allouez to monitor the rain and flooding issues that may occur later today or later this week.
