The Taylor County LEPC (Local Emergency Planning Commission) has met and announced that an emergency shelter will be opening at the Blueville Church of the Nazarene. Emergency crews are preparing the shelter as a precaution, and want reside
nts to know that it is available IF NEEDED.
Secondly, there will be no school in Taylor County for Tuesday, October 30. Board of Education representatives in attendance at the LEPC meeting believed that it would be the best interest for the students to make the decision early, letting families know before power outages and possible inclement weather began.
The Department of Highways already has crews working around the clock trying to keep ditches and culverts cleared of debris.
An arrangement has been made between the Mountain Statesman and the LEPC, that as local emergency announcements need made, that the Mountain Statesman will use its website (www.mountainstatesman.com) and Facebook to alert our community.
We will do our best to post those announcements as quickly as we are notified by our Emergency Management Director, Mark Knotts.
