County under travel watch
Under a travel warning, the highest level of local travel advisory, since Monday evening, Putnam County returned to a travel watch Tuesday afternoon.
A watch means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a "watch" local travel 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.
Commissioner Rick Woodall said the Putnam County Highway Department will have crews out 24 hours a day, clearing and maintaining roads, through Wednesday night.
