Business and Church Closing/Delay List for Sunday(2/15/2015)

List has been updated as of 12:12 AM on 2/15/2015.

***ATTENTION***
Everyone please read the ENTIRE post before making comments. We have kept the list up so that we can add the delays and/or closings as they come in. Also, this allows people to see what churches we will be reporting for. In addition, you can ask us to add a church to the list, just by commenting below. For the churches, keep in mind, this is only a listing of area churches. Delays and/or closings will be added after the church name. If there is nothing listed after the church name, there are NO closings or delays at this time. If or when we need to start a school list, we have the same policy. We list all schools in the area and then add the information as it comes in. This makes it much easier for us to keep up with. Please do not comment that "such and such" isn't closed if there is nothing listed after the name. If your church, or business is not on the list, please use the comments below, all we need is just the name of the church or business, and a contact person so we can verify the information.

I want to let everyone know that we appreciate all your comments, but the only way that a closure or delay gets added to our list is if the information can be verified. Now the ways that we get verification is by a web based source, such as TV stations websites, radio station, texting services, or a phone call. Thanks for your all understanding in this.
