NewsWhile Marshall County remains under a “Watch” level travel advisory, the County Commissioners can only enact the advisory on county roads and the unincorporated areas.

The city and towns in the county must enact their own travel advisories.

On Wednesday evening Mayor Mark Senter issued an executive order designating a “Watch” level travel advisory within the city limits.

The executive order states, “Over the last several days, the City of Plymouth has sustained significant rainfall.  Forecasts predict that the Yellow River will rise to a record level of 18 feet before the waters will begin to recede.  As a result, many areas are flooded, and numerous roads are impassable and are too dangerous to safely travel.”

A “Watch” level travel advisory means conditions are threatening to the safety of the public.  During the “Watch” advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended, and emergency action plans should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies, and other organizations.”

The “Watch” level travel advisory will remain in effect until terminated or modified by further Executive Order.
