Many roads have not been officially closed but are impassable due to flooding. Officials are asking everyone to “turn around, don’t drown." If roads are flooded or warning signs have been posted, then don’t ignore those signs.

Please use caution during this time, and don’t travel on the roadways unless absolutely necessary.
