Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf is cautioning area motorists not to try to drive around barricades in the roadways.
Barricades are in place around the county where water from the recent rains has risen over a road and will remain there until it is safe for traffic.
“We’ve been pulling cars out of the water for the better part of today (Thursday) ,” he said. “You can’t tell how much of the road is gone, or how deep it is. And, you don’t want to end up with a car full of water. Just don’t go around barricades.”
