With heavy rain expected over the next 24 hours, Kewaunee County wants residents to take caution. Emergency Director Tracy Nollenberg says the last update for the NOAA weather forecast shows up to 1.7 inches hitting the general region. It could overwhelm already saturated ground and drainage systems. Nollenberg says three roadways in the county continue to be underwater with caution signs deployed. If roadways have to be closed heed those warnings. At night, it is impossible to accurately gauge the depth of water or whether potentially dangerous debris and chemicals are mixed in.
If you lose power, please remember to operate a generator away from air intake locations of the residence to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. The general rule is that generators need to be 20 feet from windows and vents.
