Editorial - Please Be Safe!

I saw a lot of sarcasm on social media yesterday about storm preparation and media over reaction to covering Harvey.  Today and in the next few days we are facing catastophic flood threats and it is time to get really serious!  Please be safe.  Try to shelter in place if possible, or get to somewhere safe to wait out the crisis.  Get to higher ground if any way possible.

As a community newpaper, we want everyone to know we are thinking of you, and though we are a tight budgeted small family-owned publication, we plan to provide the information we can within our means to keep you posted.  If we lose technical capability, we are still thinking about all of you.

Again, Please Be Safe...

Passing on info as we can. 
- call 911 only in life-threatening situations.
-stay on the line no matter how long it takes them to answer
-otherwise shelter in place
-officials are advising you do not get into your attic but try to get on your roof instead
-if you have not flooded or have no issues at your house, do not get out on the road.
