Elba Flooding Relief Plans

Jan 4, 2016

The Coffee County Emergency Management Agency and the City of Elba met Monday to discuss how the public can receive help from the severe flooding that took place during the week of Christmas.  Mayor Mickey Murdock says nearly 140 homes and two businesses were damaged in the flooding.  The 211 number, which is now manned by local operators, can offer direction to people who need food, lodging, clean clothes and other supplies.  Volunteers are needed at this time, that are willing to perform physical labor.

A Montgomery couple has been charged with two counts each of chemical endangerment of a child after allegedly exposing two children to chemicals consistent with the production of methamphetamine.  The Montgomery Police Department arrested 35-year-old Bradley Earl Moore and 39-year-old Celina Marie Jordan on Wednesday in reference to the crime.  Police say Jordan is also being charged because she allowed the children to be exposed to the chemicals that are used to make meth.  Both are being held in the Montgomery County Jail on a bond of $10,000 each.
