Gladwin Co. Warns Residents South of Chappel Dam to Evacuate

Central dispatch is warning people living near two dams in our area to evacuate right away.

You’re looking at water-flooded roads on Betty Lee Boulevard, across from the Chappel Dam on Wiggins Lake .

Central dispatch says anyone south of the Chappel Dam on Cedar River in Gladwin County should leave their homes immediately.

And Midland County Central Dispatch is asking Edenville residents living along Sanford and Wixom Lakes to leave their homes.

They have evacuation shelters at Meridian Junior High and Coleman High.

Right now they have Boyce Hydro working on the dam. They say it is structurally sound, but cannot control the amount of water flowing through it. Flooding is a concern.
