Local Headlines

Putnam County has declared a State of Emergency in the wake of the storm.  Residents are asked to stay away from any lines that are down as they may be live, and should be considered extremely dangerous.  Motorists are reminded that if an intersection is "blacked out" and the traffic signal is not operational, the intersection is automatically a "four way" stop. In the event of closed or blocked roadways due to flooding, downed power lines or debris, motorists should use caution and obey all traffic signs or barricades in place, regardless of whether a roadway looks clear.
