City crews monitoring the water levels in creeks noted there are several locations in town where water is over the top of the creek’s bank, and into streets. At present (noon on 5/9/18), the 400 block of W. 9th Ave and the 100 block of N. Kittitas St are closed to vehicular traffic due to water over the roadway. Other streets have water on the road, and vehicles are asked to drive slowly where water is present.Sandbags and sand are available to Ellensburg residents at Kiwanis Park (14th and Main) and Wipple Park (4th and Railroad).This information will be updated periodically.Automated alerts are one of many ways to help protect your home, family, or business when there is the potential for or during a flood. However, in an emergency no single system is foolproof. Keep in mind that automated alerts are an excellent enhancement to our effort to share emergency information with our citizens, but registration will not guarantee notification of any specific event. Therefore, it is important to check multiple sources for information – such as radio, television and the Internet – and use varied methods of delivery for getting information directly – such as voice, text or email.
