Dodge County prepares for Hurricane Hermine

Dodge County is getting ready for hurricane Hermine and making final preparations. 

Dodge County EMA director Stanley Stephens says County emergency services are ready to respond to anything that may happen. 

He's been coordinating with the forestry service, fire departments, EMS, and Sheriff Lynn Sheffield. 

"Just from the rain, roads washing out, trees falling across roads or on houses," Sheffield 

Stephens says they are expecting three to five inches of rain, and that could lead to storm drain pipes bursting. 

"With the ground being as dry as it is, it's going to be a runoff, we don't expect any river flooding according to National Weather Service hydraulics sections," Stephens said. 

He wants people in Dodge County to stay alert over the next few days. 

"Stay in close contact with the local news media. All our local news media is readily providing the information," Stephens said. 

He does have a few other requests, too. 

"We are asking the public to please stay at home, and stay out of the way until we get everything cleared," Stephens said.  "If they know of any damage anywhere, please report it for us."
