    Early this morning, the Walton County Division of Emergency Management declared a local state of emergency for Walton County and moved the Emergency Operations Center to level two.


    This declaration and activation are due to recent and current severe weather and local flooding throughout the county.


    Walton County Schools have been closed for today, Wednesday, April 30th.


    To ensure safety, people are urged to stay off of the roads if possible. Public Works crews have been dispatched throughout the County to assess flooding and damage to local roadways and neighborhoods.


    Additional information will be provided as it is received from the Emergency Management Director.

    I heard that a tornado touched down in Freeport last night. Can anyone confirm? I checked some websites but none are posting. If it did touch down, does anyone know that time when?

    . If it did, would probably have been before 1:00AM. TV weather guys went live and sirens went off in Walton. At that time radar tornado headed at Veron. They said it had crossed the Bay. Possibly.
