Flood Resources and Emergency Management

SLCfloodphoto.jpgEarlier this month, Governor Herbert authorized emergency funds to aid the flood relief effort in Weber County. Under Utah law, the governor has the authority to declare a state of emergency, which can last up to 30 days or longer with a resolution by the legislature. Declarations of state emergencies are printed in the Utah State Bulletin.

Track flood levels and incident reports by visiting Utah's Homeland Security and Emergency Management site. You'll find links to local and statewide emergency declarations, weather alerts and news releases from the governor's office and other agencies.

BeReadyUtah.gov provides information about preparing for a flood emergency and links to flood warnings and forecasts.

Your local cities and counties may need volunteers to fill and place sandbags. Contact your local emergency management office or volunteer coordinator. Salt Lake County residents click here for contact information.
