Salisbury Officials Ask Residents To Stay Off The Roads

Posted: Updated:

That is a partial activation of the emergency operation center when an event/disaster is very probable. They are recommending people stay at home and off the streets, however it is not mandatory.

Officials are also asking folks to clear off porches and remove yard signs so these items don't become a hazard of a clean-up issue later.
