Turn Around Don't Drown AND ROAD CLOSURERS

Lee County Judge Paul Fischer, along with Lee County Sheriff Rodney Meyer and Emergency Director Delynn Peschke announced late Saturday night that two to four inches are expected to fall within the next 12 hours, and 10 to 20 inches of rain are forecast for Lee County over the next 5 days. Everyone is encouraged to take precautions while driving, especially over wet roadways, and roads that may have water covering them. TURN AROUND DON'T DROWN is the mantra of the hour. Those folks living in and around the Giddings Country Club, which is prone to flood, are encouraged to stay off the roadways. However, if you need to leave your homes, the Lee County Youth Center has been set up to provide shelter for flood-prone neighborhoods. Please be careful while traveling and stay indoors and off the roadways if at all possible. God Bless you all.

Sunday morning, at 9 a.m., Delynn Peschke with the Lee County Office of Emergency Management announced that the Lee County Youth Center, located at 1010 E. Hempstead in Giddings, is set up as an Emergency Evacuation Center. If you need to get to higher ground, go to the Lee County Youth Center.
