Now that remnants from Tropical Storm Gordon have swept inland, all eyes are to the sky in the Midwest,including here in the lake area, where we’re preparing for a couple days of expected heavy rainfall. Ann Mott, Assistant Director for the Camden County Emergency Management office, says there’s not a lot that can be done other than just wait and see what happens.
Organizers of the first-annual Arts Fest which had been planned for this weekend in Camdenton have decided to postpone that event. Parks Director Larry Bennett says they’ll hold it in October.
The Camdenton Arts Fest is now scheduled for Saturday, October 27th, at the city park. The Pontoon and Deck Boat poker run scheduled for this weekend has now been moved to Saturday, September 15th. The winner of the event will take home a brand new Lowe pontoon boat and trailer. The remnants of Gordon could dump 4-6 inches of rain on the region over the next three days, possibly leading to localized flooding. A flash flood watch has been issued.
