All first responders continue to be on alert and ready to assist citizens that may be adversely affected.

• Remove all valuables out of flood waters as soon as possible.
• Ensure that any persons in wheelchairs are above water level.
• Be cautious when driving on wet roads, along hillsides or in landslide prone areas.
