With heavy rainfall and saturated grounds, many trees have toppled, causing power outages region wide. If you do not have back up power, remember to be safe. This includes not burning charcoal or grills indoors for heat and keeping a close eye on any candles and fires. Have extra blankets for warmth, flashlights, and a battery-operated radio for emergency communications. Visit Current Flood Levels for up-to-date information.
