In other news from the Floyd County Emergency Management, the EMA has issued some 1,000 weather radios to Floyd County residents absolutely free over the last couple of days.  They will not be giving them away again today as originally intended.  Floyd EMA still intends to distribute weather radios to the hearing impaired tomorrow from 9 am until 2 pm at the Cave Spring Fire Station.  There will only be one radio issued per household; those seeking weather radios must present a valid ID.
