Borough of Somerville flood alert

Today (January 9), we are expecting:

  • Heavy rain (1 to 3 inches) that will lead to flooding
  • The heaviest rain occurring tonight
  • Heavy flooding in low lying areas and adjacent to rivers

Move your vehicles

If you need to move your car to higher ground, parking is free in all municipal lots until noon on Thursday, assuming the flood alert is dropped by then.

Consider a temporary evacuation

The water will rise in the middle of the night. If you live in a low lying area that typically floods, we encourage you to stay with friends or family tonight.

Stay informed

We will continue to post updates on the borough website and on our primary Facebook and Instagram accounts.
