Ind. team gets disaster tips from Tenn. floods
MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -- Central Indiana officials hope to learn lessons from the flooding that hit Tennessee in case a similar disaster strikes here.
Delaware County officials visited Nashville and Clarksville to discuss what worked and what didn't as the communities coped with the record floods earlier this month.
Emergency Management Agency Director Jason Rogers says Clarksville trailed Nashville in cleanup, and he believes that might be because more people in Nashville had flood insurance.
He says the Indiana team came away with ideas on how to improve communication efforts to reduce misinformation and stress. That could include using LED billboards to flash information to the public as well as normal media outlets.
