STORM UPDATES A few updates since we last connected on Friday. Today, Monday, we once again have a little break in the rain until the overnight hours into Tuesday.
- The county Emergency Operations Center has been activated at the lowest level mainly to support county jurisdictions with storm infrastructure impacts on roads etc.
- COAD will not have another emergency meeting unless we identify the need to activate because of unmet needs among the populations we support. Right now, most support needed is public infrastructure related.
- The next band of rain comes through tonight (Monday) starting around midnight. It may be accompanied by lightning, but is a more moderate system in terms of rainfall. To track rainfall and the river flood forecast, visit:
