While a travel advisory is lifted, Jackson County Emergency Management is asking people to use caution when driving following Wednesday's storms.

Emergency Management Coordinator Kristina Page said that the storms Wednesday knocked down trees and power lines in the county. 

"There are still roads that have sustained flood damage and there could still be trees and power lines down," said Page. "Do not go around or move barricades."

Power companies continue to work around the county restoring power lost due to the downed lines.  

Page asks that any residents that have storm damage report it to 211 or 1-800-362-8255. 

She said that there haven't been any reports of any injuries or residential damage. 

Some roads in the county were washed out due to heavy rains and are closed.
