[ARCHIVED] EVACUATION ADVISORY Issued for Northview, Dix Addition, Berry Streets, and Countryside Estates

EVACUATION NOTICE ISSUED FOR AREAS IN NORTHVIEW

(MANHATTAN, KS – May 29, 2019) An Evacuation Advisory is in effect for areas of the Northview neighborhood in Manhattan including the Dix Edition, Berry Streets, and Countryside Estates Mobile Home Park. Residents may need to evacuate in the near future because high water is expected to impact homes, businesses, and nearby roads in the next 24 to 72 hours.

The American Red Cross is opening a shelter location at Westview Church located at 615 Gillespie Drive tonight at 9:15 PM.

Emergency personnel with official identification are going door-to-door in the affected neighborhoods to notify residents of the danger. Based on the information we have currently, an evacuation order may be issued in the next 24 to 72 hours.

The US Army Corps of Engineers has notified emergency personnel that water is going to be released from the outlet works (the tubes) at a rate of 25,000cfs effective immediately. Make sure you are taking the appropriate precautions and preparing to evacuate at a moment’s notice.

The Flood Information Hotline (785) 587-4526 will be staffed from 24 hours a day and questions can also be sent to [email protected]. Information is also available on the City of Manhattan website at www.cityofmhk.com/flood. Updates will be shared on Facebook ManhattanFloodUpdates and on Twitter @updatesflood. News releases will be published daily or as additional information becomes available.
