Due to the severe weather that our area just experienced, we have several trees and power lines down along with traffic light outages and flooding. We ask that you please stay off the roads if possible until conditions permit. Please DO NOT try to drive through standing water, turn around and go back the way you came. Also, when you are able to go back outside, be aware of power lines that could be laying on the ground where you are walking. Do not get near them and call 911 immediately. We are currently working with Matthews Fire / EMS and Matthews Public Works to respond to every reported area with these issues as soon as possible to get the roadways back open. We will continue to provide updates as they come available.
