County Judge John Thomison has advised that within the next 24-48 hrs the flood waters will be in Lawrence County 3 to 4 ft higher than it was in 2011.

The areas of Coffman, Portia, and Clover Bend will be the most affected areas. If you live in these locations you need to start preparing for evacuation of the area. Now will be the time to get your belongings out.

This will be slow moving and you will have some time to leave the area safely.
