Police say water levels spiked Saturday night, peaking at more than 11 feet around 9 p.m.

According to police, 13 residents are at the Red Cross shelter and 9 pets are being cared for in the pet shelter.

“Attempting to travel by vehicle in and out of Valley Green Park is still not advised, as water levels are still at a point where many passenger vehicles are unable to successfully pass,” police said.
