Representative Works with Corps to Address Flooding
Representative Marcy Kaptur (OH-09) has announced that the United States Coast Guard is working actively to assist in flood relief efforts in Vermillion River, the Port of Huron, and the Rocky River.
This intervention is the result of collaboration between Representative Kaptur and local officials in Vermilion, Huron, and Rocky River with Coast Guard and Army Corps of Engineers officials in the region.
“I would like to thank the U.S. Coast Guard, the Army Corps of Engineers, local elected officials, my staff and residents of the affected areas for their joint effort in confronting the imminent threat of flooding in our area. The spring thaw can be a dangerous time for flooding and can pose serious challenges to residents and officials alike,” said Kaptur.
Coast Guard Cutter Neah Bay is currently cutting relief tracks off of Vermilion and Rocky River as well as conducting initial fracture for the Port of Huron in conjunction with Army Corps of Engineers flood relief efforts in the Central Basin of Lake Erie.
