Hurricane Florence continues to wreak havoc on the Carolinas as it tracks slowly inward. Eventually the storm will make a turn to the north and is expected to follow the Appalachian Mountains into West Virginia. New models are showing reducing rainfall for Allegany County. Projections are now 2 inches or less with most of that occurring Monday and Tuesday. Although we are very saturated, that amount of rainfall of that amount of time will drastically reduce our flooding potential. Winds could be very gusty on the front edge and may result in trees down and potential power failures. I urge you to still continue to prepare and monitor until this storm moves out of our area. Furthermore, keep the people of North and South Carolina in your prayers. The flooding has been devastating and loss of life has already been reported. Dick DeVore, Director Allegany County Dept. of Emergency Services
