Flood Update

Posted By on Wed, May 4, 2011 at 1:27 PM

Here's the latest numbers from the emergency flooding operations center on Avery. I'll be attending a press briefing there later today, so I'll report additional information at that time.

* 706 single family residences
* 12 Apartment complexes-(432 units)

* 322 Industrial sites

The 2,832 properties are not in addition to the 5,300 that was announced yesterday. It’s a new and lower total, according to county public affairs officer Steve Schular.
