Storm Update

Elections still on; schools to dismiss early Tuesday

Municipal elections are still on in Grove Hill, Jackson and Coffeeville Tuesday. Polls will be open 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. A hint: Vote early before the weather gets bad!

Clarke County public schools will dismiss by noon Tuesday and be out Wednesday. Schools are expected to resume Thursday but the situation will be reassessed beforehand. Clarke Prep School in Grove Hill will also dismiss at midday Tuesday and be out Wednesday.

Tropical Storm Isaac continues to track to the west and southwest Alabama does not appear to be threatened as greatly as it could have been. New Orleans is under the gun again but southwest Alabama appears to be, if not out of danger, at least not in as great a danger.
