OEM drying out after record rainfall

After experiencing record rainfall in Memphis, the underground OEM office located in Midtown suffered some water damaging in the DCC, storage room, and several offices.

Approximately 1 inch of rain water seeped in through the foundation walls. With the help of staff and a restoration company, water, damaged drywall, and carpeting is being removed. No electronic equipment was damaged.

A temporary DCC has been setup in a mobile command center with thanks to the Shelby County Office of Preparedness.

The City of Memphis Office of Emergency management still remains at normal operations.
