Although the State of Emergency for Clay County is officially lifted, residents are urged to stay home.
"Unless it is absolutely necessary - like for an emergency or travel to and from work -people should just stay home," Clay County Emergency Director Bryan Husband told The Brazil Times Sunday. "There are very few roads in the county that haven't suffered damage of some type."
The Clay County Emergency Management and Clay County Commissioners officially lifted the emergency proclamation Sunday afternoon around 4:30 p.m., which allows local traffic on county roads. However, according to Husband, that hasn't changed the fact many areas in the county are experiencing high water and many roads are hazardous to travel.
"All county roads have received some type of damage and the Clay County Highway Department does not have enough warning signs to post all the closed roads," Husband said. "Motorists should not drive through unfamiliar areas and definitely avoid high water."
The Clay County Commissioners and Husband are expected meet on Monday to make further determinations about road conditions on Monday.
