metamora herald flood sign

The rain is so important for plants and crops, but can we have a break? Possibly this weekend just in time for the Metamora Pool to open on Sunday, May 28th. According to the National Weather Service in Lincoln, IL we may catch that break this weekend. However, there is still flood warnings and we must take care to listen to the warnings about flooding. If you encounter a flooded roadway, turn around and find an alternate route. Turn around, don`t drown! Don't put your life or anyone else's life in danger. Nothing is as important as safety for you and EMS teams.
