Greenfield, Mass Police Department: As we are under a flood watch for small rivers and stream and a flood warning for the Connecticut River our officers are instructed to check our low lying flood prone areas. As you can see from these photos the Deerfield River by the Meadows Golf Course is already above flood stage, this is not unusual for this time of year. The Green River usually first starts to show flooding at the Greenfield Swimming Pool, right now this river is far below flood stage, but is susceptible to flash flooding, so we will continue to keep an eye on it! As the flood risk increases, the police department will meet with the fire department and the emergency management director to formulate a plan to protect the town and our citizens. If we need to issue alerts, we will do so here and through twitter and www.nixle.com.
