Owns said more than 10 inches of rainfall have been reported in southern Adams County, where the majority of rain-related problems have been.

Water from the 50-acre Robins Lake poured south over the dam on Robins Lake Road, covering approximately 80 yards of the road and rendering it impassable.

Owens said he strongly urged residents in the Robins Lake area and south of it to evacuate as a safety precaution.

A bridge on Bourke Road reportedly flooded, Owens said.

A portion of Timber Lake Road is closed due to flooding, and the road has sustained damage.

A bridge on Lower Woodville Road was closed early in the day due to flooding, but it is now open for traffic, Owens said.

Owens said a few roads had small mudslide and trees were down on Lower Woodville and Liberty roads. The trees have since been cleared from roads.
