County awaits torrent of flood calls

Floodwater has receded and Christmas is over, and now the county expects to get more calls from home and business owners reporting damage from high water.

Only one person had called Johnson County Emergency Management as of Thursday morning to report flood damage, but director Stephanie Sichting expects to hear from more residents who had flooded basements or their vehicles or other items were damaged when water got into homes, garages or sheds.

Some of those reports of damage likely will come from property owners in southern parts of the county after water drained from the north into rivers and creeks around Edinburgh, but most residents in the area didn’t have any problems with high water, Sichting said.
