Weather Swings Could Lead to Street Flooding. Here’s How You Can Help

Heavy snow to polar vortex to more snow to above-freezing-and-rain. Welcome to winter in the Midwest.

The rapid-fire weather changes could lead to streets flooding if storm drains aren’t cleared as snow melts (and rain comes).

Residents can help by clearing out storm drains near their homes so melting snow and rain can make it into our storm water system instead of staying on streets. Even just a shovel-width of space allows the drains to function and prevent street flooding.
