New Haven ALERTS

Hi, this is Mayor Justin Elicker with an important message for New Haven residents about heavy rains and potential flooding in our area. 


The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for our area this morning, and there remains a flood watch through today, Tuesday, September 6th 


Combined with high tides today at 8:10 AM and 8:27 PM tonight, there is the possibility that areas of the city and roadways can become flooded without warning and become dangerous and cause damage quickly. 


A few quick safety tips for residents:  


  • Ensure your vehicles are not parked in low lying areas. 
  • Drive with caution as hydroplaning can occur without warning. 
  • Do not drive though flooded roadways instead, just turn around and chose a different route 
  • Check in on your family, friends and neighbors. 
  • Call 9-1-1 for any flood-related emergencies. 


Thank you for your cooperation and stay safe!
