Iolan Shayne Shaughnessy set up his own version of an early flood warning system.

About a half block from his home at the intersection of South Washington and Rock, Shaughnessy placed a small orange flag. 

If the flag goes under water, he will know it’s time for his family to finish packing and possibly evacuate.
