Monthly tests of the outdoor warning sirens by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Communications center will resume on Wednesday May 3rd. The tests will be conducted on the first Wednesday of the month between 5pm and 6pm. If severe weather is in the area the tests will be cancelled. Cloudy skies or “garden variety” rain will not prevent the tests from being conducted.
These tests will include the voice message sirens at the campgrounds in Rock Dam and Hatfield.
It is Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness week and we will be conducting statewide Tornado Drills on Thursday. The first drill will take place at approximately 1:45pm and the second around 6:45 pm. This should give you the opportunity to practice your response plan at home and at work. The Clark County Communications Center will be testing their procedures as part of the drill and outdoor warning sirens will be sounded. If there is severe weather in the area on Thursday the drill will be postponed until Friday. Cloudy skies or “garden variety” storms will not postpone the drill.
Please take this opportunity to practice your plans for severe weather and know where your shelter areas are.
The Village of Withee will be flushing water mains the week of April 17 through April 21. Withee customers may experience cloudy and discolored water at this time. This is due from mineral sediments breaking free. Be sure to check water in a clear before doing laundry, as it might stain laundry. The flushing will be done mainly from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day of the week. If you have any questions, please contact Village Hall at 715-229-4319.
