Weather forecasts for the next few days are predicting large amounts of rain due to Bill. A similar weather pattern dumped a lot of rain on Brentwood in September 2008. On that Sunday afternoon, Brentwood was flooded in many areas. Manchester Road, between Mary Ave. and Cecelia Ave., Brentwood Blvd. at Russell Ave, Hanley Industrial Court, Brentwood Industrial Court, Brentshire Walk Apartments, and several other streets were flooded for a good part of the day.
Now is the time to prepare for the possible evacuation of your property. If the streets become flooded, road closures will be the result. In 2008, the only way out of Brentwood was north. Always follow the directions of public safety officers. Do not try to drive through flooded streets.
Updates on safety concerns, road closures, etc. will be available here, and on our Facebook page, on Nextdoor and at the City of Brentwood website.
Be careful out there.
