At 142 PM CST, emergency management continues to report flooding in

portions of eastern Lauderdale, Lawrence, and western Limestone

Counties. Recent reports indicate flooding is continuing in low-

lying locations with numerous road closures. Rainfall amounts around

one inch occurred earlier today, but this fell on top of nearly

saturated soils and combined with the heavy rainfall from yesterday

has resulted in flooding.

Moulton, Rogersville, Town Creek, Littleville, Lexington, Leighton,

Courtland, North Courtland, Hillsboro and Anderson.

Little additional rainfall is expected in portions of eastern

Lauderdale, Lawrence or western Limestone Counties for the remainder

of the day. However, rain is expected to move back into the area

tomorrow.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood

deaths occur in vehicles. Also, the road bed may be washed out under

the water, and you could be stranded or trapped.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All

interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.
