Weather Alert

Thunderstorms & Poor Drainage Flooding Possible Today

Isolated instability showers will give way to a chance for thunderstorms this afternoon. While the overall threat for severe weather appears relatively low, one or two storms could produce gusty winds, large hail, and possibly very heavy rain. If heavy rain persists, or if multiple storms move over the same area, then low lying areas, and poor drainage locations, could experience flooding. A second round of late night storms may be possible, but the rain should clear off to the East after midnight.

Government Shutdown: Not able to contact your lawmaker?

Updated: Tuesday, October 15 2013, 11:22 AM EDT
The partial federal government shutdown has limited your access to some contact with your lawmakers.

Senator Charles Schumer's website shows a message telling visitors that while the partial federal government shutdown is in affect, emails and calls will not be answered until the shutdown is lifted.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's website tells visitors via a pop up window, that offices are not staffed and emails and letters will be responded to after the shutdown.

Senator Patrick Leahy also uses a pop up window to inform visitors that communications to the office will resume after the shutdown.

Many congressmen websites are still active and have answers to frequently asked questions on what is open and what government functions will continue to function through the shutdown.
