Macomb County Declared State of Disaster

Macomb County declares state of emergency
Flood information hotline and reporting form established

Macomb County Executive Mark A. Hackel has declared a state of emergency due to the recent floods and heavy rain.
“This has been a major flooding situation,” said Executive Hackel. “Our Emergency Management team continues to receive reports and requests for assistance from the flooding which caused major roads and highways to be closed and considerable damage to homes and businesses.”
Macomb County Emergency Management Director Vicki Wolber reports that following a review of all communities it has been determined that local and county resources continue to be utilized and needed and that more and more damage reports are occurring.
Starting tomorrow, a hotline number for residents in need of information is available from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday by calling
(586) 493-6767. The county is also encouraging all residents and businesses who suffered damage from the heavy rain and floods to use an online reporting tool. The Damage Assessment Report Form can be found on the Emergency Management website at http://oemc.macombgov.org. A hard copy of the form is also available at all local government offices. For further information you may also e-mail Macomb County Emergency Management at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The purpose of the reporting form is to collect information only for reporting to the state and is not a mechanism for any type of reimbursement or financial assistance.

The county has also established a damage assessment reporting center at the Southwest Health Center located at 27690 Van Dyke, Warren, 48093 for those residents who do not have access to a computer or need assistance in completing the form.
