Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
11/29/03-- The Lamar County Salvation Army is in desperate need of donations.
The organization has fallen on hard times and says that without some charitable donations, more than 300 families in the Lamar County area could be without a Christmas meal.
Volunteers spend up to eight hours per day ringing bells outside of grocery stores and say they need the change now more than ever.
Bell ringers will be accepting donations until two days before Christmas.
