Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:06 AM CST on February 24, 2018

Expires 7:00 AM EST on February 25, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flood Watch continues for

* all of southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, southwest Indiana
and western Kentucky.

* Through late tonight.

* Showers and thunderstorms will be on the increase today, peaking
in coverage and intensity later this afternoon and evening as a
cold front approaches. With ground conditions already saturated,
any additional rain from thunderstorms will only worsen existing
areal flooding. Additionally, heavier rainfall rates from
strong thunderstorms could easily produce dangerous flash
flooding.

* Additional rains will aggravate already ongoing flooding of area
rivers and tributaries across the region. Smaller streams and
creeks not currently in flood will fill up and overspill their
banks quickly, heightening the flood threat. In addition,
elevated water levels in low lying and poor drainage areas, as
well as waters that may not yet have receded from antecedent
rainfall, may lead to more Road closures due to high water
crossings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Heed all Flood Warning signs, and never cross a flooded roadway.
Turn around and don't drown! Remember it is harder to see rising
waters at night. Seek High Ground immediately if you encounter an
area with rising waters.
