Storm, Flooding Update
The Deerfield area received more than seven inches of rain over the past ten hours from a multi-wave storm system. The heavy storms have caused isolated flooding and power outages impacting more than 2,100. Flooding/Sandbags
The Village is making sandbags available to residents who need them. Public Works staff has delivered sandbags to some areas that have experienced flooding and will continue to make them available at the Public Works Facility at 465 Elm Street. Residents can help reduce flooding by checking to make sure the inlets in their neighborhoods are clear of debris and refrain from using excess amounts of water, such as doing laundry, as the sewer system is experiencing high volume at this time.Power
