At the time of this report, there are 6 areas where trees are down with power lines in them. They are:

  • 27 and Lee Road
  • Tucker and Ridgelawn
  • Henry and Great Lake
  • Paxton and 27
  • Youngton and Summer Seat Road
  • Redbone and Blackwell Drive
  • Santa Rosa Drive in Marion Park

Trees are down everywhere from LeTourneau to Freetown Road with roads blocked throughout the county. At one point 61 South was blocked by a tree, however, that roadway has reopened. Crews are working on the major thoroughfares to clear the trees. Please allow extra time and room for crews to work.

Warren County firefighters, Sheriff’s Deputies, Emergency Management and road crews are out in force to maintain safety.

Flooding was a problem immediately after the storm but most roadways have cleared the water by now. Pemberton remained clear from flooding after the storm due to the new storm drains installed.
