Updated: Road closings & openings

Posted: Updated:

Did you know that more drivers are killed each year by drowning than are killed by lightning and tornadoes?

Always drive with your lights on whenever it's raining enough to require use of your windshield wipers, this helps other drivers see you. Remember the line: don't drown, turn around.
