Flooding Coverage - 4/29/2017


As of 11:50 AM The City of Sarcoxie is experiencing localized flooding within the town. We have several properties that are flooding. We do have the FEMA building at the grade school open for anyone displaced by the flooding. Right now crews are planning evacuations of the Senior Housing here in town. Further information will be released as it becomes available. 

As of 12:47 evacuations have been done in the lower parts of the city. While the first round of flooding is receding at the moment we caution people about returning to their homes as another round of flash flooding could happen. Center Creek is up and additional rain will could make it rise quickly causing another round of flooding. If people do return to their homes they need to be prepared to leave again if a second round of flash flooding occurs. More information will be released as it becomes available.
