UPDATE: Service to 911 Center in Susquehanna County Restored After Storm
UPDATE: Service to the Susquehanna County’s 911 center was restored Thursday night.
MONTROSE — The heavy rain forced the evacuation of a county building in Montrose Thursday afternoon.
That building houses Susquehanna County’s Parole Office on the first floor and the County’s 911 center in the basement.
County Officials told Newswatch 16 about three to four inches of rain water flooded the offices. Our crews found county employees setting up a temporary 9-1-1 center in the parking lot next to the courthouse, with the goal of moving into the courthouse for the next few days.
“Currently we are assessing everything. We are setting our 911 center up temporarily across at the courthouse,” said Alan Hall, the Susquehanna County Commissioner. “They’ll be up and running without any problems and we’ll still maintain the services to the public.”
Commissioner Hall tells Newswatch 16 that furniture, carpeting, and ceiling tile will most likely have to be replaced after being damaged by the water.
