According to the Ross Barnet Reservoir, floodwaters that impacted homes over the weekend are now receding. Evacuees are now clear to return to their homes. We would like to remind citizens that this is still a dangerous circumstance as harmful debris and other biohazards can still linger in the water. Curbside pickup and Roll-Off Dumpsters will be available tomorrow until further notice. To report residential damage, commercial damage, and debris cleanup, please use the Crisis Tracker. Residents impacted by flooding can visit any metro Jackson area Lowes location for free supplies and water.

Visit the MS Department of Health for Flood Tips. Please stay out of floodwaters!

AARP will serve as a catalyst to educate, encourage, promote, and recognize improvements that stand to make the City more supportive of its senior population as well as residents of all ages.

Additionally, the World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities to encourage and promote public policies to increase the number of cities and communities that support healthy aging to improve the health, well-being, satisfaction, and quality of life for older Americans.
