LAKE CITY NEEDS YOUR IMMEDIATE HELP!
The current situation in Lake City is extremely urgent. The City is in imminent danger from flooding due to major avalanches in March, which are now melting and creating log and ice jams. When they release it could cause extensive damage to the town and the local infrastructure. The Hinsdale County Sheriff was personally affected by the avalanches and the community is trying to mitigate future damage.
At this time, the emergency operations plan has identified the need for sandbagging as a priority. This need is further defined as 1,000 sandbags per day, for the next 15 days.
This Thursday, May 23rd a group of people, including local law enforcement personnel, are heading to Lake City to help. The community has a sandbag filling machine and has individuals available to teach others how to use the machine. The Monte Vista Police Department has already committed four officers to this effort and urges other local law enforcement and emergency units to join in. The relief convoy will be leaving the MVPD around 6:30AM with plans to get briefed at 10:00AM in Lake City to begin filling the 1,000 per day quota.
Whether you are in law enforcement, emergency services or and individual wanting to help your neighbors, please join in to assist Lake City in their efforts to save their town. If you need more information, please contact the Monte Vista Police Department at 719-852-6161 or Pastor Bob Galey at 248-421-0501. Thank you for helping be a part of this effort.
