Opp PD urges residents to stay off roadways during heavy rainfall

Opp, AL (WSFA) - The Opp Police Department is asking for residents to stay off roadways until the heavy rainfall passes through the Wiregrass region.

In a post on the department's Facebook page, police ask for people to stay off the roads unless there is a dire need to be out.

Police also say that several roads have been blocked off due to water covering the roadway. If you come upon a section of road with water over it, do not drive through it but rather turn around and find an alternate route.
