Ruined Roads

Rough weekend waters washed out bridges and ruined many counrty roads.

Now that the rain has stopped, the clean up is getting started, but it will take a lot of time and millions of dollars to fix the massive amount of road damage.

Culverts are washed out, shoulders are broken off, and bridges are washed out, so roads must stay closed.

And if you don't see any yellow tape, emergency crews say watch out. The roads can give way and collapse at any time.

The McMillan Fire Chief says if you don't need to drive on the country roads, please stay away because they are very dangerous.
