Jamie Thompson, of Brownstown, today issued the following statement after severe storms moved through southeast Michigan on Thursday night and caused significant damage in communities she represents as part of the 28th House District. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer declared a state of emergency for Monroe and Wayne counties earlier today:
“I have been in frequent communication with local leaders, emergency management officials and the Michigan State Police to help keep impacted people and their families across our area informed. I have also been on the ground in communities visiting with people who have been impacted by the terrible storms and flooding that we have seen.
