The Marion County Engineer’s Office says they’re continuing to evaluate damage in the aftermath of Thursday night’s storms. Flash flooding occurred in several areas, and they say that several roads are still underwater. Drivers should use caution while traveling rural roads. The Engineers’ Office notes that water is receding off of some locations, but they anticipate most roads to be closed throughout the weekend.
