Blissfield residents worried about possible flooding

BLISSFIELD, MI (Toledo News Now) -

It's a story residents of Blissfield know all too well. Melting snow led to high water and flooding in the village in 2011.

"Our basement was flooded so we had to get that fixed," said Syd Doyle.

Leaders say they want everyone to be prepared in case of flooding this year. The county's Emergency Management Director met with Blissfield's police chief Thursday to assess the risk.

The best thing to do to prepare for possible flooding is to move important documents to a safe place, preferably somewhere high in the home. Residents should also have a bag ready in case they need to evacuate quickly.

Leaders expect to have an update on flooding potential in Blissfield next Tuesday. In the mean time, residents say they're just keeping their fingers crossed.

"We're just trusting that it's not going to flood again," said Doyle.
