The Marietta Dispatch is once again answering non-emergency calls following complications from the storm.

The Marietta City Building suffered water damage due to strong storms Saturday afternoon. Water leaking from the ceiling forced dispatchers to relocate.

At that time, they were only accepting emergency calls and all 911 calls were transferred to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

The non-emergency line is 740-376-2007.
