Mid-Michigan Flooding

The State of Michigan activated the State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) due to flooding in Midland County caused by the failure of the Edenville and Sanford Dams.

SEOC personnel are monitoring the situation and working with state and local officials as well as private sector partners to ensure any resource needs are met. MSP/EMHSD district coordinators are on scene with local emergency management officials and supporting local emergency operation centers.

The SEOC is overseen by the MSP/EMHSD and coordinates response and recovery efforts by state agencies and local government. The SEOC is staffed by members of state agencies for decision making and information coordination during disasters or emergencies in the State of Michigan.
