St. Francois County Sheriff On Memorial Day

(St. Francois County) The Memorial Day holiday will be celebrated this weekend. St. Francois County Sheriff Dan Bullock says it serves as a good time to remind people not to drink and drive.

It’s also expected to be a wet weekend with thunderstorms in the forecast. Bullock says be careful when traveling through low lying areas and bridges.

Last year, over 43 million Americans traveled for the holiday weekend. Those totals are expected to be down this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
