A new collaborative Facebook page is helping public safety, local officials, and communities throughout Aroostook County stay connected in regards to rising water levels and potential flood concerns in the entire region. https://www.facebook.com/Aroostook-County-Flood-Watch-643083355864118/
Darren Woods, Director of Aroostook EMA says, “This page is a collaboration of agencies and communities in an effort to increase public information on spring flooding conditions in our area.
The intent is not to take away the value of information from other sites, but it is meant to be a “one-stop-shop” of anything flood related in Aroostook County.
This is being done with partnerships with government, communities and media agencies. We also highly encourage people to post pictures and information of what is going on in your area so that we can share this data with all interested parties quickly.”
We encourage any local residents or officials to use the page as a resource, to gather or share information.
