During inclement weather, we want our community to be safe. If you must get out in these conditions, remember:
- Drive slower than usual, so you have time to react to other traffic on the roadway.
- Turn on your headlights, so you are visible to other vehicles and pedestrians.
- Be aware of possible flooding in low-lying areas.
- If you must be on the road, be aware and find an alternative route.
- Whether driving or walking, any time you come to a flooded road, Turn-Around. Don’t Drown.
The City and EOC team will continue to monitor our City’s infrastructure and the weather situation throughout the day.
