For anyone that has additional needs beyond damage reporting, please call the United Way 2-1-1 for assistance such as sheltering, transportation, cleanup/recovery.

A Travel Advisory is the lowest level of travel restrictions and means motorists may find some roads impassable or closed because of hazardous conditions.
