Wet forecast into Friday night

Even when the clouds opened slightly and you thought the rain had stopped, it was still raining most of the day. But especially this morning when it seemed like the rain fell at the rate of one inch an hour. The rain caused its share of flooding, automobile stalling, and the like. An apparent sinkhole developed in the parking lot of Yousef’s restaurant in Westminster. The rain will stay with us, with a wet forecast into at least Friday night. Chief Brandon Burton of the Walhalla Fire Department says if you are unsure whether a certain road is still open, call Dispatch at 638-4111. Burton stresses it’s never a good idea to cross standing water on a roadway.
