Worsening weather conditions prompted Duane Davis of Jackson County Emergency Management Office to issue a travel watch in the area.
A watch means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a watch local travel advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended, Davis said. Emergency action plans should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies, and other organizations, he added.
