Dothan-Houston County EMA officials keeping keen eye on roadways, rivers

By  | 

DOTHAN, AL (WTVY) Meanwhile, officials in the Dothan-Houston County Emergency Management office are working around the clock to monitor the roadways.

It's all in an effort to help keep drivers safe as heavy thunderstorms roll thru the Wiregrass.

Officials say they are keeping a close eye on weather conditions and rising river levels and that drivers should expect some residual flooding on city streets and county roads.

EMA Director Chris Judah recommends erring on the side of caution if you plan to be behind the wheel this evening.

"If you don't think you can make it through there, if you don't think you should, you don't see the road, don't try," said Chris Judah, Dothan-Houston County EMA Director. "Emergency crews will have their hands full already and we don't need any further involvement with automobiles or anything like that. So if you do see water over the roads, please be careful."

If you experience any problems on the roadways, Judah says you can call the Dothan-Houston County EMA at (334) 794-9720 or your local police department. Road and bridge crews are on stand-by and will be dispatched if needed.
