Text from HSEM sent in error

Residents in Itasca County are asked to disregard a text from Homeland Security Emergency Management.

The texts may have been received in other nearby areas, but the Sheriff’s Office says the text received by citizens was sent in error.

There is no need to evacuate immediately.
