Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace is asking those without legitimate business to be in the Eagle Lake community to stay away from the area while crews are assisting its residents.
Eagle Lake is still without power and has sustained property damage. Twin County is working on restoring power to residents, county road crews are clearing debris and Warren County deputies are in the area assisting where they can.
Pace is asking those who do not live in the area to stay clear.
“We would ask people that don’t live there, that don’t have any business being there, please just stay away from Eagle Lake,” said Pace.
Pace also provided an update on the road conditions within the county. Only two major roads in Warren County are completely blocked. Grange Hall Road is blocked west of Fisher Ferry Road and Paxton Road is blocked between Hinds CC and the Pentecostal Church are blocked as of this writing according to Pace. Several minor roads in the area may also be partially blocked.
“We have a number of secondary roads throughout the county that are partially blocked with limbs,” said Pace.
Pace stated there may be a number of roads with one lane obscured in places. County crews were overwhelmed Sunday night clearing roadways so drivers could have access. Crews are working today to clear the rest of the debris they couldn’t take care of during that time.
