The Sikeston Department of Safety released this information Thursday afternoon for residents.
Missouri Delta Medical Center urgently requests all of their staff to report to their scheduled duty assignments. This is especially important for the evening and midnight duty hours.
Those who are in need of food or water can respond to the Sikeston High School Field House or Miner Baptist Church on H Highway. The Salvation Army will be serving food at these locations.
Sikeston DPS again requests you NOT to use emergency 911 lines for questions about power and other non-emergency issues. Our dispatch is being overwhelmed with these types of calls and they do not have answers about electrical power at this time. We ask for your assistance to free up our phone lines for emergency calls.
