GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Roads in Greenfield may be closed until early next week due to flooding and freezing. Nashes Mill, Colrain Road, and Kimball Drive will be closed for an undetermined amount of time until they are safe.
Earlier Friday preparations were made for evacuations. Unsheltered persons were relocated and shelter was arranged for anyone who needed it. Residents were notified as well as staff at the Greenfield Middle School in case an emergency evacuation order was given. The apartments at Riverside Drive in particular were in danger of flooding.
Luckily, an evacuation order was not needed and Greenfield Deputy Police Chief William Gordon confirmed with 22News that there is no more threat of evacuation. Deerfield Street is being monitored for additional flooding.
The Greenfield Police Department told 22News that the floods are starting to reduce, but Nashes Mill, Colrain Road, and Kimball Drive are all still closed. 22News will update this story as soon as more information becomes available.
