WASHINGTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG) - Washington County emergency officials have closed all roads in the county after receiving heavy rainfall from Hurricane Sally.

Emergency officials say road conditions are extremely dangerous and are asking people to stay off the roads. The only exception are emergency vehicles and essential critical travel.

They say while barricades are in place for some roadways, the county has run out of barricades, so there’s a chance some roadways that are dangerous to travel on may not have markers.

County officials tell us it is possible roads have been damaged from the amount of rainfall the county has received. They also say some roads have yet to be assessed.
