Special Statement

Statement as of 8:20 PM EST on March 05, 2015

Expires 1:30 AM EST on March 06, 2015


Here is a Special Weather Statement from the National Weather
Service...

Outside of the flooding along the larger rivers... flood waters
across much of the area have receded. However... secondary roads
remain closed due to high water at some locations.

Any remaining high water should continue to recede overnight.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to
cross safely. Be especially careful driving at night as you may
not be able to see the water on the roadway.

Please report high water to the National Weather Service by
calling toll free... 1-800-401-9535... when you can do so safely.
