Rain Storm – Flooding Update
Thursday, September 14, 2006
Northwest Indiana experienced an extremely unusual period of heavy rainfall the week of September 10. While Whiting was not without incident, we fared much better than many of our neighboring communities. As of September 14, there were only handful of serious incidents reported. Mayor Stahura and his staff are currently reviewing each incident report to determine in the City can make further improvements to help alleviate future problems. Stahura said, ” While we will never eliminate all sewer and drainage issues in our Community, we will continue to make improvements wherever possible.” The Mayor encourages any resident that had experienced a problem related to the recent rains to call City Hall to report the incident.
