XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) – Xenia community members stopped by Cox Elementary school Tuesday night expecting a neighborhood night out event, but morning thunderstorms roared through Greene County forcing city leaders to cancel the event.
City of Xenia’s Public Relations Manager, Lee Warren, said the storm was at its worst during setup time for the event. “When you plan them [events] you can’t plan for the weather three months later. Unfortunately, we’re not in sunny Florida every day and we’re in an area, which has inclement weather every now and then like we did today. We have to cancel these, because it does take set up time and that’s when it was raining today, so we did not want to have these issues of potential danger to the public at large.” Warren said.
This event was the second of four events to help promote community, public safety and city government interaction and relations.
The event was planned three months ago. There is no word yet on when they may reschedule this event.
