With the heavy rain easing up, many closed roads are passable. However trees are coming down due to the saturated ground. Please keep this in mind - you may want to temporarily avoid heavily treed roads. Also roads that are passable now may become unpassable once again as rain picks back up. Also note that all stop lights on 309 are out due to power outages so please be very very careful
