The heavy rainfall has caused numerous Township roadways to become flooded.  Emergency crews have placed barricades up to close those roadways, as they are safe.  Despite this, there have been instances of vehicles still driving through the water-covered roads - some are getting stuck!  Please obey road closure signage.  If a roadway is completely covered in water, TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN!  (even if there is no sign)
