      Shiawassee Co. opens shelters following ice storm

      Shiawassee County remains under a state of emergengcy following recent ice storms

      Shiawassee County remains under a state of emergency due to the recent ice storm. Overnight snow has made roads which were previously cleared once again hazardous. If you must travel, paved, primary roads will be the first to be cleared. The additonal snow may result in additional fallen branches, debris, and downed power lines. Remember to stay at least 25 feet from any downed power line, even those believed to be disconnected. Contact Consumers Energey, or your electric provider if you encounter downed lines. The number to call for information on shleters and other resources available has changed. If you, or someone you know, remains in need of shelter or other assistance as a result of the storm and the resulting power outages, please call 989-743-2630 to be directed to the appropriate assistance. That number, again, is 989-743-2630. Community Climate Day Centers
