Storm Leaves Unseasonable Flooding In Some Areas 

The high winds and rains have cleared out of the area but the storm has left some unseasonable flooding in its wake.In Milo flooding on the Pleasant river forced the closure of the Medford road this morning.Some folks managed to successfully cross the flooded section of road, while others weren’t brave enough to try it.Milo Emergency Manager Jerry Cole says the pleasant river is prone to flooding but not this time of year. “Usually spring time, you’re more or less assured it because the river is so flat that the ice jumps up and she’ll cover out through the fields here real easy. But not in the middle of December,” says Cole.Cole says the water level is already starting to come down and as long as the rain stays away, the roads around here shouldn’t be closed for long.
