Dear Friends,

Over the course of the last few days, our district has been directly impacted by the rainfall, winds and storms that have moved through Southeast Michigan. We are working with our federal, state and local partners to address any issues and are currently taking a closer look at the damage that occurred. Our team has compiled resources available to residents for assessing and reporting damages, as well as hotline numbers to call for immediate help to individuals and families facing conditions of extreme hardship or emergencies that can threaten health and safety.
