How soon can I come back home after a storm has passed?

Do not rush back to your home after you have evacuated.  Public Safety personnel are out and about making sure the roadways are safe for your return and it is easier to do that without all of the traffic back on the roadways.  Many traffic lights will be out, roadways can be flooded, power lines can be down and utility service many not be established at your home yet.  Please remember to take your time returning home until it is safe to do so.  Be patient and be careful.
