Afton declares flood emergency
The increasing threat of major flooding this spring has prompted Afton City Council to declare a State of Emergency.
City Council made the declaration Tuesday during its regular meeting.
Afton's emergency declaration came on the heals of Washington County declaring a State of Emergency earlier in the day.
Afton's declaration allows the city to begin flood preparations such as road closures and sandbagging.
