Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) declared a state of emergency for Midland County on Tuesday night after two dams failed, flooding areas along the Tittabawassee River. The National Weather Service warned anyone near the engorged river to seek higher ground after "catastrophic dam failures" at the Edenville and Sanford dams, about 140 miles north of Detroit. Michigan officials said about 10,000 residents are being evacuated in Midland, Edenville, and Sanford. Midland, a town of 42,000, has a major Dow Chemical plant on the city''''s riverbank.

周二晚上,密歇根州州長格雷琴·惠特默宣布米德蘭縣進入緊急狀態,原因是兩座水壩垮塌后,導致Tittabawassee河沿岸地區洪水泛濫。美國國家氣象局警告說,在底特律以北約140英里處的埃登維爾和桑福德大壩發生“災難性的潰壩”后,任何靠近這條滿溢河流的人都要前往地勢更高的地方避難。密西根州官員說,米德蘭、伊登維爾和桑福德大約有1萬居民被疏散。米德蘭是一個擁有4.2萬人口的小鎮,在該市的河岸上有一家屬于陶氏化學的大型工廠。

"In the next 12 to 15 hours, downtown Midland could be under approximately nine feet of water," Whitmer warned in a press briefing late Tuesday. "If you have not evacuated the area, do so now and get somewhere safe," she added in a statement. "This is unlike anything we''''ve seen in Midland County. If you have a family member or loved one who lives in another part of the state, go there now. If you don''''t, go to one of the shelters that have opened across the county."

“在接下來的12到15個小時內,米德蘭市中心可能被大約9英尺深的水淹沒,”惠特默在周二晚些時候的新聞發布會上警告說?!叭绻氵€沒有撤離該地區,現在就撤離,到安全的地方去,”她在一份聲明中補充說?!艾F在的情況不同于我們以前在米德蘭縣看到的任何情況。如果你有家人或愛人住在本州的另一個地方,現在就去那里。如果沒有,那就前往該縣另一邊已經開放的避難所?!?
