Updated: Greene County Travel Advisory Level I announced; Effective 9:01 pm Saturday through 12 noon Monday

Saturday, January 4, 2014

Greene County will be under a Travel Advisory Level I from 9:01 p.m. Saturday until 12:01 p.m. Monday.

Greene County Emergency Management Director Roger Axe made the announcement early Saturday afternoon.

"Due to the coming dangerous weather forecast, please be advised the Greene County Board of Commissioners has declared a Travel Advisory Level I, for Greene County as of 9:01 p.m. today (Saturday) until 12:01 p.m. Monday," said Axe.

Axe noted the advisory does not go into effect until 9:01 tonight.

The Advisory says: "People should avoid travel on State, County, City, and Town roads in Greene County, Indiana. Travel at your own risk."

Axe said he wanted to thank everyone in Greene County in advance for their cooperation.

"Accordingly for public safety," Axe added,"we are asking all Greene County organizations including churches to cancel all Sunday, January 5, 2014 activities."

The official advisory was signed by Greene County Commissioner Ed Michael at 12:10 p.m. Saturday.

Before the criticism of this advisory starts, I would like to thank the officials for making the best decision they could based on the information available to them.

To put it in perspective, should they wait for a funnel cloud to touch down before activating the tornado sirens? Do we whine if the sirens are activated and we don't have any tornados?
