Flood Advisory: Be prepared for the next couple of days

Editor's Note: I suspect many flood advisories and warnings will be forthcoming over the next couple of days. For an overview of what to expect, please see this article http://www.grantcountybeat.com/index.php/news/news-articles/11408-cold-front-and-upper-level-low-pressure-expected-to-cause-widespread-shower-and-thunderstrom-activity-flood-watch-for-region

It will show that through Tuesday, we should be prepared for exceptional rain, so please prepare for possible flooding, especially if you live in a low-lying area. Do not cross any flooded roads. Even a little bit of rushing water can carry away a car or person.

I will try to keep you updated with the latest warnings, but I also have meetings to attend, so let yourself be prepared!!
