Rains cause muddy mess in Berrien County

September 7, 2003

Berrien County - Crews have worked all weekend, and most of the roads in Berrien County are back to normal. Seven inches of rain poured down in just a few hours on Friday night creating a muddy situation.

EMA Director R.H. Warren says the problem was, "Too much rain too quick. It's beginning to run off, but we still have quite a bit on the roads."

Crews have worked all weekend to repair washed out sections of road to make sure school buses will be able to make their regular stops on Monday.

But some of the roads aren't safe at all, and Warren says if they can just have a few days without rain to repair the roads, they'll soon be back to normal.

"It's just, all caught up with us, so much rain, and the ditches are filled up," says Warren. "If it'll give us about a week or so, we'll get them back right."

Warren says they hope to have all the roads prepared by the end of the week.
