Motorists Advised to Avoid Bay Island and Lynnhaven Colony

Sunday, October 28, 2012

The Police Department advises that Bay Island and Lynnhaven Colony are experiencing flooding due to Hurricane Sandy.  Motorists should avoid both areas until further notice.


Motorists also should avoid standing water as heavy rain can lead to dangerous flood conditions.  Check traffic reports for the location of flooded roads, and approach standing water with extreme caution. Do not attempt to drive through deep water.  


Motorists are also advised that if traffic signals are dark and not operating, the intersection becomes a four-way stop.  Motorists should also look out for other drivers who may think they have the right-of-way.
