Anyone know if N. Four Bridges Road is passable yet? How about Bartley Road down by the intersection with Naughright Road? My mom lives by herself on top of N. Four Bridges Road.

Hi everyone! We´ve been out of the country... does everyone know if the area around 186 West Mill Rd. (River Run Farm) is flooded? It would be very helpful if anyone answered! Thanks!

Marila - West Mill Road from the center of town through Califon (Rt. 513) is clear of any flooding. It did, however, flood on Sunday and early Monday.
