With heavy rainfall Wednesday and today, rural roads have areas of ponding water on them. Use caution when driving after dark especially when flooded roads are more difficult to see. Earlier today, Pendleton Fire Department had to rescue people from this car, because they thought they could drive thru flood waters.
Remember to Turn Around Don’t Drown if you see water across the roadway. Going the extra mile is worth it, it may just save your life. (Photo courtesy of The Herald Bulletin)
