City of Flint Response to Severe Weather
Update: The City of Flint is advising residents to be safe and alert as sever weather continues to disrupt power and cause trees and limbs to fall. Due to road conditions, residents are strongly encouraged not to travel if they are somewhere they can stay warm. If travel is necessary, caution should be taken to avoid accidents due to ice and downed trees blocking roadways.
For residents seeking warm shelter, the American Red Cross in Flint is open as a warming center. Both area shopping malls can also serve as daytime locations in which to stay warm. Residents can also contact their local churches to inquire on whether they will be open as a warming center.
The City of Flint says there are two numbers for residents to call to report downed trees and limbs in the roadways: (810) 766-7165 and (810) 766-7463 ext. 3.
In response to recent severe weather, the City of Flint wants residents to know that city trucks were salting through the night on Sunday and that removal of downed trees and limbs have continued this morning.
Flint City Hall was not affected by the power outages that followed the sever weather and is open for regular city business until 5 p.m. today.
