Brown County Emergency Management is warning residents to use caution with the recent flooding we’ve seen.
They have ordered a “shelter in place” which means if you’re in your home, stay in your home. That includes residents that live off of Lime Kiln in the subdivision of Daly Drive, Palmer Court, Palmer Drive, Lopez Lane, Trevino Drive, Johnny Lane, Faldo Lane and Tiger Court.

The Brown County Sheriff’s Office adds that if you come across a flooded roadway, do not attempt to drive through it as you may end up getting stranded and trapped.
