2017 Flood Information

Waterways in Vernon Township are expected to crest by Saturday, July 5 at Noon. Vernon Township advises residents at risk to consider moving cars out of the driveways/garages and parking in Lake County Public Works parking area. Residents should also consider leaving their homes for several days.

Residents should be extra cautious when approaching flood waters. The water is rising slowly so an area that was once passable may be dangerous to navigate.
