Given impending storm conditions and the information below from Dane County Emergency Management, I am directing city supervisory employees to allow non-public safety employees (those who live further out) to leave as early as 2:00 p.m. today to avoid flash flooding and dangerous winds and possible tornadoes. I am urging safety first, including cancellation of tonight’s public meetings, recreation programs, golf course and library hours. Although the radar might not show it, weather conditions are ripe for another major event, and I want our employees and customers to be advised to get and stay home. Public Works Director Shawn Stauske adds strong caution for people not to drive into water of any depth. Portions of road already saturated from recent rains may wash out, and manhole covers may be lifted off of their structures. Neither of those can be seen by a driver, and either can be very hazardous.
Here’s the latest that I’ve seen: https://madison.com/wsj/weather/severe-weather-risk-upgraded-to-enhanced-heavy-rain-large-hail/article_7ff571a5-973c-5891-bea4-c0824c84e83d.html
If you have any questions, please e-mail me as I will be in budget meetings this afternoon. Thanks and be safe!
