New data from the Census Bureau shows localized life expectancy data, a closer look than what was provided before. It’s allowing local health departments to concentrate efforts in struggling places.

Before these data some life expectancy information was available separated into zip codes, but those data were not available for every zip code. These new numbers are by census tract, a geographic area with roughly four thousand people.

Berrien County sees flooding, evacuations

Feb 23, 2018

 

Berrien County, Michigan like other places around Michiana has been hit by flooding and high water as rainfall and snowmelt mix.

Just downriver from where Old U.S. 31 crosses the St. Joseph River in Berrien Springs, Shamrock Park is underwater. A little further downriver, so is River Springs Trailer Park. Both have been evacuated.

Berrien County Sheriff Paul Bailey said it’s likely to be a while before residents can get back into their homes.
