Road closures throughout the county

April 14, 2014

By Rob Alway. Editor-in-Chief.

Heavy wind and rain Saturday night along with heavy rain Sunday night have created hazardous road conditions in parts of Mason County. Emergency and road crews have been out throughout the day assessing damage to area roads.

“We have numerous reports of roads covered with several inches of water and some starting to washout,” said Mason County Emergency Coordinator Liz Reimink. “We are asking motorist to avoid these locations and to not drive through standing water that’s over roadways and avoid ALL contact with down power lines.

“Travel only if necessary and if you encounter a barricade, please do not move the barrels or barricades as these roads are not safe for travel.”

Anyone who encounters a life threatening condition and needs Fire, EMS or police should call 911.
