Severe weather hampers motorists

Written by  Monday, 11 August 2014 09:56

  Most of the day Sunday was spent under a severe weather watch.  Then last night storms dumped several inches of rain in and around the area which quickly flooded some streets and parking lots.

 

  Ted Wynn, Bulloch County Director of Public Safety/Emergency Management advises there is still a chance of some of the same, so be careful and don’t drive through standing water. 

 

  The Statesboro Police Department issued a Nixle alert shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday advising motorists to beware of accumulations of water on the roads.  The rain “brought heavy water flow on streets and roads” and prompted police to advise motorists “stay off roads if possible.”

 

  Shortly after 12 o’clock this morning another alert was issued saying the severe weather had subsided but water was still on the roadways and motorists were advised to use caution when traveling.

 

  We could be in for more of the same today.  The National Weather Service a hazardous weather advisory in effect until 11 p.m.

    

  Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across the region again today as a weak stationary front lingers near the area. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches with isolated amounts in excess of 5 inches will be possible through this evening. This rainfall when combined with saturated grounds from recent heavy rain  could produce significant flash flooding. Driving could become hazardous with some roadways becoming impassable.
