State Police have partially activated the State Emergency Operations Center in Lansing due to the severe weather and flooding occurring throughout the Lower Peninsula. On Tuesday afternoon, Mecosta, Midland, Newaygo, Osceola and Wexford counties each declared a local state of emergency. The declaration enables a county or municipality to execute emergency operations plans, administrate local aid and assistance and issue declarations. A local declaration also acts as a warning signal that a community is coping with an emergency or disaster. Mecosta County Sheriff Todd Purcell says those traveling around the area should remain vigilant, observant and most important abide by the road closure signs put up by the road commission around the county. Officials say Homeland Security is currently working with local emergency management officials to ensure communities have resources needed to respond. No requests for state assistance have been received at this time. (MRN)
