From the Jones County EOC:
Jones County has been removed from the tropical storm watch. The wind threat has diminished as well. Jones County could see 15 to 20 mph sustained winds and some gusts up to 30 mph. Rainfall totals have also been lowered to 2 to 3 inches of rain for our area. Jones County is still in a flash flood watch and will remain in the flash flood watch until Hurricane Sally has moved far enough away  to take the rain threat with it. With the removal of the tropical storm watch and the lowering of the wind threat we are going to stop updates for Hurricane Sally.
The EOC will continue to monitor and will send out a message should flooding become a problem.
The Jones County Safe Room will not be opening for Hurricane Sally. Should we start having flooding issues we will look at opening at that point.
