County Judge Ed Emmett warned Sunday that most traffic signals were out and many roads were still impeded by tree limbs, fallen power lines or high water. He said trucks were on their way to replenish the city's gas supply, but that the fuel that does arrive will first be used for generators at medical facilities.

Mayor Bill White urged people to stay off the roads, especially because more rain overnight added to roadway problems.
