Residents asked to remain home if they’re not in danger

The Orange County Office of Emergency Management asks that residents who have water rising into their home but are not in danger, to please stay in your home.

Emergency crews are responding to accidents and other road-related incidents.

There is water over many roads and you cannot tell how deep it is, particularly in the dark, Orange officials report.

Do not get on the roadways unless you have no other option, officials request.
