Close to 2000 people, including bands from several area schools and Mayors from both sides of the city joined the Governors for the announcement.

    The National Weather Service is saying it's still too soon to count out the effects of Gordan over the weekend. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast for the entire Four State Region through the upcoming weekend into early next week as we await the effects of an upper level trough which should be moving into our region Sunday into Monday of next week possibly bringing excessive amounts of rain.
