With the heavy rains these past few days, Bay County health officials are urging residents to take proper precautions to prevent illnesses during and after flooding. That includes not allowing children to play in flood waters since it could be contaminated by sewage. Health Department spokeswoman Heather Kretzer says there’s also a tip for private well owners.
