02/05/14 The Marshall County Board of Commissioners have implemented an emergency declaration that includes a “Warning Level” travel advisory. The emergency declaration went into effect at 7:00 pm Tuesday in order to give citizens, schools, businesses, and other organizations an opportunity to implement their emergency plans. Currently the travel advisory is for the unincorporated areas of the county, and the Town of Culver. Road conditions will be evaluated early in the morning on Wednesday to determine what, if any, action should be taken.
For your safety, the commissioners are asking all citizens to comply with the necessary emergency measures, and to cooperate fully with public officials.
Please do not try to drive on roads that are drifted and impassable.
For clarification, an ADVISORY level, yellow, means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas and that caution should be used. A WATCH level, orange, means that conditions are threatening for the public’s safety and only essential travel such as to and from work or in emergency situations should happen. The WARNING level, red, restricts travel of the general population and urges the implementation of emergency operation plans.
