How can we stay informed?
  • Radio stations that specialize in 24-hour news and information are your best source for up-to-date traffic and weather advisories during major events.
  • Inexpensive weather monitors are also recommended, especially those that activate when the National Weather Service sends out special weather statements.
  • Local events, such as parades, fairs, shows, etc. are announced via press releases to newspapers, radio and television stations well in advance of the event. Frequently, telephone numbers are listed for additional information.
