03 Oct For Immediate Release 10-3-19
City of Jefferson Emergency and Administrative services are asking the public to once again be both aware and vigilant regarding the Rock and Crawfish River levels. As of this morning, water levels have not breached walls or streets. Water levels are predicted to reach the moderate flood stage over the weekend. These projections are subject to change as weather forecasts are updated.
City Officials anticipate the possibility of moderate impacts to portions of the City. City streets and facilities will remain open until deemed a hazard by City officials, at which time they will posted for closure. We are anticipating no disruption to any City of Jefferson services.
We would ask citizens to be patient when traveling and to NEVER drive through any areas with standing water.
At this time the City has a limited supply of filled sandbags on hand. Sandbags will be made available for pick-up for City residents. Pallets of pre-filled sandbags will be placed (1) in the parking lot of the Police Department and (2) in the Tensfeldt park parking lot. Residents are responsible for placement of sandbags at their residences and are encouraged to take measures to protect their own properties.
